Abstract

In missing-data analysis, Little’s test (1988, Journal of the American Statistical Association 83: 1198–1202) is useful for testing the assumption of missing completely at random for multivariate, partially observed quantitative data. I introduce the mcartest command, which implements Little’s missing completely at random test and its extension for testing the covariate-dependent missingness. The command also includes an option to perform the likelihood-ratio test with adjustment for unequal variances. I illustrate the use of mcartest through an example and evaluate the finite-sample performance of these tests in simulation studies.
