The Future of missing data

If you do data analysis, you encounter missing data. Missing data upsets data analysis workflow because you have to make decisions on how to deal with it - do you impute the values? Remove them? These each have consequences! The data we often encounter does not always arrive with a research question in mind, so how do you understand why you have missing values? When I first encountered missing data I was incredibly frustrated at how hard it was to understand and explore it. This frustration led me to create two R packages to explore missing data, {naniar} and {visdat}. In this talk I will showcase how to use these tools to explore missing data, as well as new features that have not been presented, and planned advances.
