```Hi Martin,

```
Thank you very much for the reply. I am VERY NEW to Stata. I am using version 10. I assume that pr is the DV and we f rep tr tu are the IVs. Is there something that should replace "sample" such as _mj? I need to calculate the beta values for the -mim- run on 5 imputed data sets. Thank you.

Best,
Frank

If you think it is appropriate to do so, you can recover beta coefficients manually yourself. As far as I can tell, that is pretty much what -betacoef- does internally.
```

*to recover beta coefficients

sysuse auto, clear
qui reg pr we f rep tr tu
qui sum pr if e(sample)
sca sd=r(sd)
qui tabstat we f rep tr tu if e(sample), ///
statistics( sd ) columns(variables) save

mata
sds=st_matrix("r(StatTotal)")'
mata stata qui reg pr we f rep tr tu
bs=st_matrix("e(b)")[1..5]'
beta=bs:*sds:/st_numscalar("sd")
beta
end

*check
reg pr we f rep tr tu, beta noheader

```Dear All,

```
Can I calculate beta values besides the standard estimates that the - mim- command produces? I tried using the below commands, but results returned no values. Thank you.
```
Best regards,
Frank

mim: regress y x1 x2.....
mim, storebv
betacoef
return list
matrix list r(beta)

Results:
r(beta) [1,23]
x1    x2... _cons
.         .           0
