st: -mice- available on SSC
Thanks to Kit Baum, a -mice- package is now
available on SSC.
The author is Patrick Royston. I am acting
only as poster. Patrick is not a member
of Statalist, so questions on -mice- or
any other of his programs should be
sent to him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
-mice- is a package for multiple imputation of
missing values. MICE is, precisely, multivariate
imputation by chained equations.
Patrick published this in Stata Journal
4(3):227-241 (2004) using Stata 8 code. The package
then attracted some interest from Stata 7 users,
and Patrick realised that only a few tweaks
were needed to make the package also available
to Stata 7 users. (Stata 6 or below: sorry,
the process goes no further.)
He thus put out a version called -mice7- on SSC.
Despite what it says about -mice7- (as I write) if you go
. ssc desc mice
the files in -mice7- have already met Kit Baum's cat, called
-rm- (_r_emove _m_ice), and are no more.
-mice- on SSC now is in effect a beta release of
a second edition, which should be of interest
to Stata 8 or Stata 7 users of -mice-, irrespective
of whether you downloaded the files from the
SJ website or you installed -mice7- from SSC.
Among other changes
(1) -mlogit- is now supported by -micombine-.
(2) -micombine- now allows the -id()- option to
support use independent of the rest of the package.
