Currently, there is a clear gap in the missing data literature for three-level models. To date, the literature has only focused on the theoretical and algorithmic work required to implement three-level imputation using the joint model (JM) method of imputation, leaving relatively no work done on fully conditional specication (FCS) method. Moreover, the literature lacks any methodological evaluation of three-level imputation. Thus, this thesis serves two purposes: (1) to develop an algorithm in order to implement FCS in the context of a three-level model and (2) to evaluate both imputation methods. The simulation investigated a random intercept model under both …
