Table 3 Accuracy of the EBS method (Simulation II) and STS method (Simulation III). For Simulation II, the top performing imputation method and the predicted method by EBS during cross-validation is given for all 50 simulations. For Simulation III the optimal method, along with the STS selected method, is given for the 10 "first tier" simulations. In each case the number of simulations each method achieved the given ranking is given in parenthesis.
