I think that the impute command works only for continous variables. If
you want to base your imputation on the determinsitic regression
technique, you would perhaps need to use  a -probit- command.

Hello -

I have a few questions concerning the impute command.

I am trying to impute values to a dichotomous variable coded 1 if 
individuals were employed and 0 if they were not.

First, does the impute command treat all the predictor variables in the
way that a regression command does?  More specifically, if I am using a
of dummy variables, do I omit one category?  I ask this because I was
some test runs and I included ALL variables in the impute command and it
not give me the message "variable was dropped due to collinearity."

Second, is there a way to specify the impute command to round imputed
either to 1 or 0 depending on the prediction (e.g. predicted values 0 -
become 0 and values .50-1 become 1)  ?
