The Center for HIV Identification, Prevention, and Treatment Services (CHIPTS), funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, leverages world class science to combat HIV globally, in partnership with communities, families, and individuals impacted by the pandemic. Strategies for integrating, promoting, and diffusing HIV detection, prevention, and care is our primary mission. Investigators from UCLA, Friends Research Institute, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and research and community partners globally collaborate to achieve CHIPTS’ mission. CHIPTS creates opportunities for scientific leadership, expertise, and infrastructure to be leveraged to create, understand, and evaluate: 1) structural & community level interventions; 2) models of adaptation & adoption of efficacious interventions; 3) strategies to reduce disparities for scientists, nations, communities, & individuals; and 4) research agendas that integrate behavioral, biomedical, & technological intervention strategies. The CHIPTS community promotes cutting edge science; networks and builds capacity of scientists, advocates, policy makers, and consumers.

Especially, sensitive questions such as questions about income or assets tend to show higher percentage of missing values. When missing values occur, complete-case analysis may lead to biased estimates of parameters. Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging(KLoSA) is a longitudinal study to evaluate aging trends in the Korean population and apply the results to the social welfare and labor policy. KLoSA collected baseline data in 2006 and first follow-up data in 2008. We conducted multiple imputation based on hotdeck to handle missing values in KLoSA baseline and first follow-up data. In this study, we explain the imputation strategy adopted for filling in missing values of major outcome variables in KLoSA.||3/29/2012||Free||View in iTunes|
