For incomplete data model, the commonly used density estimator of the underlying distribution cannot be computed directly, as the corresponding kernel requires all original data to be available. To estimate density function with such incomplete data model using only the observed data, we propose to use a conditional version of the kernel given the observed data. We study such kernel density estimator for several commonly used incomplete data models.  Some large-sample properties of the proposed estimators are investigated.
