Yesterday I wrote this blog post which showed how one could use `{furrr}`

and `{mice}`

to impute missing data in parallel, thus speeding up the process tremendously.

To make using this snippet of code easier, I quickly cobbled together an experimental package called `{pmice}`

that you can install from Github:

devtools::install_github("b-rodrigues/pmice")

For now, it returns a list of `mids`

objects and not a `mids`

object like `mice::mice()`

does, but I’ll be working on it. Contributions welcome!
