The model of interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy soft sets is a novel excellent solution which can manage the uncertainty and fuzziness of data. However, when we apply this model into practical applications, it is an indisputable fact that there are some missing data in many cases for a variety of reasons. For the purpose of handling this problem, this paper presents new data processing approaches for an incomplete interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy soft set. The missing data will be ignored if percentages of missing degree of membership and nonmember ship in total degree of membership and nonmember ship for both the related parameter and object are below the threshold values; otherwise, it will be filled. The proposed filling method fully considers and employs the characteristics of the interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy soft set itself. A case is shown in order to display the proposed method. From the results of experiments on all thirty randomly generated datasets, we can discover that the overall accuracy rate is up to 80.1% by our filling method. Finally, we give one real-life application to illustrate our proposed method.
