st: treatment of missing values in a matrix dissimilarity score |

I'd like to calculate the matches between observations across a set of binary variables. I suspect that there are multiple ways to do this. I've specified: matrix dissimilarity m=x1 x2 x3 x4, match proportion However, some values in x1-x4 are missing. Based on the results, it appears that Stata treats missing values as if they were 1 and I don't see how to modify that. I'd like to calculate to calculate similarities across only non-missing elements (the number of which will be different for each pair, of course). Thanks for any help.
