The smdi flagship function is smdi_diagnose() which calls multiple sub-functions which are also accessible separately. This article aims to give an introduction to missing covariate data diagnostics using the individual smdi diagnostics function that all funnel into the main function smdi_diagnose().

What is smdi about? Large-scale simulations revealed characteristic patterns of diagnostic parameters matched to common missing data structures based on three group diagnostics:
