Abstract

The missing data problem has been widely addressed in the literature. The traditional methods for handling missing data may be not suited to spatial data, which can exhibit distinctive structures of dependence and/or heterogeneity. As a possible solution to the spatial missing data problem, this paper proposes an approach that combines the Bayesian Interpolation method [Benedetti, R. & Palma, D. (1994) Markov random field-based image subsampling method, Journal of Applied Statistics, 21(5), 495–509] with a multiple imputation procedure. The method is developed in a univariate and a multivariate framework, and its performance is evaluated through an empirical illustration based on data related to labour productivity in European regions.
