Missing data imputation is an important issue in machine learning and data mining. In this paper, we propose a new and efficient imputation method for a kind of missing data: semi-parametric data. Our imputation method aims at making an optimal evaluation about Root Mean Square Error (RMSE), distribution function and quantile after missing-data are imputed. We evaluate our approaches using both simulated data and real data experimentally, and demonstrate that our stochastic semi-parametric regression imputation is much better than existing deterministic semi-parametric regression imputation in efficiency and effectiveness. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007.
