[R] Off-topic: looking for a categorical, NMAR dataset

Dear Colleagues,

apologies for this off-topic posting.

A Ph.D. student here at U of Melb. is trying to find a dataset to use
to demonstrate a technique that he is developing.  He needs a binary
response and ideally a categorical predictor, although the latter can
of course be induced from a continuous predictor.  The data should
also have missing values (ideally, NMAR, not missing at random) in the
response and in the predictor.

Of course we could generate such a dataset but it would be preferable
to use a dataset in which handling the missingness is an integral part
of the analysis.

The data set could be in any discipline, ideally already published.

If you have any suggestions, please respond directly to Ken at
