Dear Statalisters,

This question is related to a previous question I posed in "st: Issue with
multiple imputation -ICE-".

If I want to impute missing values of dichotomous (dummy) variables, what is
the best method to apply? The -ice- command here seems to be a bad option,
since running this command has shown to provide unreliable results. What
would then be the best option in which circumstance? :

-hotdeck-
-imputerasch- (http://anaqol.org/index.php?file=editonepgm.php&idpgm=34&fr=)
-imputemok- (http://anaqol.org/index.php?file=editonepgm.php&idpgm=34&fr=)
Any other???

The dataset is very large (10.000+) and the amount of missing values of the
dummy variables in question never exceed 20%.

Thanks and greetings,

René
