Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we consider a general regression model where missing data occur in the response and in the covariates. Our aim is to estimate the marginal distribution function and a marginal functional, such as the mean, the median or any $$\alpha $$ α -quantile of the response variable. A missing at random condition is assumed in order to prevent from bias in the estimation of the marginal measures under a non-ignorable missing mechanism. We give two different approaches for the estimation of the responses distribution function and of a given marginal functional, involving inverse probability weighting and the convolution of the distribution function of the observed residuals and that of the observed estimated regression function. Through a Monte Carlo study and two real data sets, we illustrate the behaviour of our proposals.
