It is well accepted that many real-life datasets are full of missing data. In this paper we introduce, analyze and compare several well known treatment methods for missing data handling and propose new methods based on Naive Bayesian classifier to estimate and replace missing data. We conduct extensive experiments on datasets from UCI to compare these methods. Finally we apply these models to a geriatric hospital dataset in order to assess their effectiveness on a real-life dataset.
