Missing Values

When a missing value is encountered at time , the smoothed values are updated using the error-correction form of the smoothing equations with the one-step-ahead prediction error, , set to zero. The missing value is estimated using the one-step-ahead prediction at time , that is (Aldrin 1989). The error-correction forms of each of the smoothing models are listed in the following sections.
