Hi all.  I am a fairly new STATA user who is determinedly trying to finish my 
dissertation.  I have uploaded the hot deck add on and at this point (ever 
changing) plan to do hot deck multiple imputation based upon the advice of 
the statistician on my committee.  In trying to think about the ramifications 
of using this method, being that I am also a novice to multiple imputation, I 
had some questions after reading about the disadvantages.  I am concerned 
about the time intensiveness of testing models for each dataset separately 
and recombining the model results into one summary model.  In addition to the 
time intensiveness, I wondered if any of you out knew more about summary 
methods that might be available in STATA?  I have read that summary methods 
are generally available in most statistical software packages for linear and 
logistic regression models but that work is still in progress to provide 
statistically appropriate summarization methods for other models.  Has anyone 
out there used these summary methods in STATA that might have some words of 
wisdom? I will be using Poisson regression in my analysis and I wondered if 
these summary methods were available for this type of regression modelling?

Thanks in advance for any help,
Beth
