Are you referring to complete nonresponses or a situation where some questions were not answered?

1. Insured (226)

2. Not insured (7)

3. Missing (16)

Should the missing data be excluded all together if you were estimating the proportion of the population that are not insured?

Oh thanks.

I have another question. What are two ways to deal with non responses? Are they:

1. To ingnore and include them in computation

2. Eliminate them all together

Or is the first one not one of them? The book I'm using just gives me one, but the problem I'm doing is asking for two. It wants me do caculations based on both. I can't say they should go and gather more samples, because I won't have the data to include in the calculation.

The question asks: Provide two methods of dealing with the missing Data. From each method, determine the upper and lower limits for the estimated number of for the thing I'm looking for.
