The purpose of this study was to examine the threshold of the number of missing days of recovery using the individual information (II)-centered approach. Data for this study came from 86 participants, aged from 17 to 79 years old, who had 7 consecutive days of complete pedometer (Yamax SW 200) wear. Missing datasets (1 d through 5 d missing) were created by a SAS random process 10 000 times each. All missing values were replaced using the II-centered approach. A 7 d average was calculated for each dataset, including the complete dataset. Repeated measure ANOVA was used to determine the differences between 1 d through 5 d missing datasets and the complete dataset. Mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) was also computed. Mean (SD) daily step count for the complete 7 d dataset was 7979 (3084). Mean (SD) values for the 1 d through 5 d missing datasets were 8072 (3218), 8066 (3109), 7968 (3273), 7741 (3050) and 8314 (3529), respectively (p > 0.05). The lower MAPEs were estimated for 1 d missing (5.2%, 95% confidence interval (CI) 4.4-6.0) and 2 d missing (8.4%, 95% CI 7.0-9.8), while all others were greater than 10%. The results of this study show that the 1 d through 5 d missing datasets, with replaced values, were not significantly different from the complete dataset. Based on the MAPE results, it is not recommended to replace more than two days of missing step counts.
