Income imputation for the Canadian Community Health Survey: CS11-619/2013-3E-PDF

"This paper begins by exploring potential sources for income imputation before describing the final approach in detail. Simulation results are presented and show that the imputation strategy worked well at ensuring that imputed values are often within the same quintile as what would have been reported. Simulations of the resulting estimates show that analyses that include imputed income values are different from analyses based on only income respondents, which suggests a possible nonresponse bias reduction"--Abstract.
