Exploring imputation techniques for missing data in transportation management systems Smith, Brian L ; Scherer, William T ; Conklin, James H

By: Smith, Brian LContributor(s): Scherer, William T | Conklin, James HPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2003Description: nr 1836, s. 132-42Subject(s): USA | Data base | Correction | Error | Adjustment | Method | Statistics | Accuracy | 10 | 11 | 21Bibl.nr: VTI P8169:2003 Ref ; VTI P8167Location: Abstract: Many states have implemented large-scale transportation management systems to improve mobility in urban areas. These systems are highly prone to missing and erroneous data, which results in drastically reduced data sets for analysis and real-time operations. Imputation is the practice of filling in missing data with estimated values. Currently, the transportation industry generally does not use imputation as a means for handling missing data. Other disciplines have recognized the importance of addressing missing data and, as a result, methods and software for imputing missing data are becoming widely available. The feasibility and applicability of imputing missing traffic data are addressed, and a preliminary analysis of several heuristic and statistical imputation techniques is performed. Preliminary results produced excellent performance in the case study and indicate that the statistical techniques are more accurate while maintaining the natural characteristics of the data.
