Removing the weights does not seem to fix the problem. However, I am able to work around the problem and obtain reproducible results by manually setting the seed both before -ice- and before -mim-. The -seed- option in -ice- does not need to be used. For example: set seed 1234 ice var1 var2 var3 , m(2) set seed 1234 mim: reg var1 var2 var3 Thank you for all of your suggestion.

(1) You are using weights. If I recall correctly ICE produces results using iterations => order matters. My suggestion is to try your problem without weights. (2) Sorting could make some differences here. You could try imputing one dataset each time using a specific seed. It is expected the correlations between imputed variables (original y replication) should be one. Under (1) you have no solution. Under (2) you could control the problem imputing 1 dataset at the time with specific seeds. We had problem (2) with user-written routine hotdeck.
