## imputing BLOQ's with a constant value

### Description

function to impute BLOQ observations by replacing them with a constant value.

### Usage

```
imputeConstant(inputData, LOQ, constantValue)
```

### Arguments

`inputData` |
numeric matrix or data frame of the size n by J (n the sample size and J the number of time points) the input dataset |

`LOQ` |
scalar, limit of quantification value |

`constantValue` |
scalar, the constant value which replaces all BLOQ's, default is LOQ/2 |

### Value

the imputed dataset: a numeric matrix or data frame of the size n by J (n the sample size and J the number of time points)

### Examples

```
# generate data from Beal model with only fixed effects
set.seed(111)
genDataFixedEffects <- simulateBealModelFixedEffects(10, 0.693,
+ 1, 1, seq(0.5,3,0.5))
# replacing BLOQ's with LOQ/2
imputeConstant(genDataFixedEffects, 0.1, 0.1/2)
```
