Dear all,

I'm new to Stata and hoping you can offer some assistance. I'm having a tough time finding syntax that will allow me to obtain descriptive statistics (including frequencies, means and standard deviations) from my multiply imputed data. Any assistance you can offer would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Malitta

First off, since you are using multiple imputation you may want to upgrade to Stata 11. See http://www.stata.com/stata11/mi.html.

2nd, if no one else has any easier ideas, you can often get descriptive stats using estimation commands, e.g.

mean x
proportion x
reg x

-mean- and -proportion- and -reg- all work with the -mim- command.
