Dear Stata Listserv users,

I am having difficulty with reproducing the imputation obtained using
the 'hotdeck' command. I have the updated hotdeck command downloaded,
and I am using the following command to ensure reproducibility without
any luck.

sort idnew
set seed 123456789
hotdeck hhsex using hhsex,by(ward_she) store keep(idnew) seed(1234)

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Ali
