Missing data which inevitably occurs in observed time series may lead to an erroneous result based on the correlation integral analysis. Effects of data, missing at regular and irregular times, on the analyzed result are estimated. A model estimation is obtained for the Lorenz time series. The effects of the missing data in economic and astronomical time series are estimated using the correlation integral analysis. A convenient method of choosing a time lag is proposed to minimize the effect of regularly missing data.
