Abstract

Methodology Report No. 10 focuses on data editing techniques, including data processing, coding guidelines, how data errors were dealt with, and how edits were made including the editing that was done to protect respondent confidentiality. In addition, this report discusses the imputation procedures that were often used when values were missing and explains the impact these imputations will likely have on the estimation of variance.
