Thank you. One reason I'd rather not resort to MI is that I already need to use
permutation to determine p-values, and doing this for multiply imputed datasets
would be time consuming. Also I am planning to use a score test, and my
understanding is that score tests of null hypotheses are unbiased even when the
uncertainty in the singly imputed values is ignored. I don't recall the
reference for this though - perhaps I've misunderstood?
