I'm trying to undertake multiple imputation with "ice" and have a
questions about how to account for the relationship between a
constructed variable and its multiple component parts.  I'm aware
that I should use "passive" and, at times, "eq", but not exactly
sure of how. For example, I have created a variable I'll call
"sexuality" from the "gender" variable (0,1) and "attracted to
males" (0,1) and "attracted to females" (0,1).  How would I
represent this in "ice"?  I'd appreciate some help figuring this
out.
Thanks
S. Strauss
