What is the difference between -impute- and -reg- followed by

Impute fills in missing values, so after imputation the variable will be a combination of values actually observed and values that were imputed.

With reg and predict, all the values for yhat will be imputed.

If I'm right, I believe this would be apparent if you added t_aflcio_mem to your listing.
