## 摘要

Confidence intervals for the mean of discrete exponential families are widely used in many applications. Since missing data are commonly encountered, the interval estimation for incomplete data is an important problem. The performances of the existing multiple imputation confidence intervals are unsatisfactory. We propose modified multiple imputation confidence intervals to improve the existing confidence intervals for the mean of the discrete exponential families with quadratic variance functions. A simulation study shows that the coverage probabilities of the modified confidence intervals are closer to the nominal level than the existing confidence intervals when the true mean is near the boundaries of the parameter space. These confidence intervals are also illustrated with real data examples.
