Linear Regression Analysis With Missing Observations Among The Independent Variables in Animal Breeding


Abstract: In animal breeding, when there is a relationship between the dependent (Y) and independent (X) variables, regression analysis is applied. But when one of the variables has one or more missing observations regression analysis cannot be applied. This paper illustrates and discusses a regression analysis in which the independent variable (X) has a missing observation.

Keywords: Regression Analysis, Least Square Estimation, Missing Observations.
