{pmice}, an experimental package for missing data imputation in parallel using {mice} and {furrr}

(This article was first published on Econometrics and Free Software, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Yesterday I wrote this blog post which showed how one could use {furrr} and {mice} to impute missing data in parallel, thus speeding up the process tremendously.

To make using this snippet of code easier, I quickly cobbled together an experimental package called {pmice} that you can install from Github:


For now, it returns a list of mids objects and not a mids object like mice::mice() does, but I’ll be working on it. Contributions welcome!
