Imputes missing values in large-scale high-dimensional phenome data. phenomeImpute contains four variations of K-nearest-neighbor (KNN) methods and was compared with two existing methods, multivariate imputation by chained equations and missForest. The four variations are imputation by variables (KNN-V), by subjects (KNN-S), their weighted hybrid (KNN-H) and an adaptively weighted hybrid (KNN-A). The results show that Imputation of missing values with low imputability measures increased imputation errors greatly and could potentially deteriorate downstream analyses.
