After running -ice- to multiply impute five datasets, I used -mim- to obtain descriptive statistics (Stata v. 10.1).

In the output from -mim: mean...- there is a t statistic and p-value. Is this test comparing the means in the five MI datasets?

Here is an excerpt of the output:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
mim: mean v32cesd

Multiple-imputation estimates (mean)                     Imputations =	5
Mean estimation                                          Minimum obs =	77
Minimum dof =	31.6


           Coef.       Std. Err.     t    P>t    [95% Conf. Int.]     MI.df
v32cesd    12.6104    1.19472    10.56    0.000    10.1757    15.0451   31.6
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks in advance.
Cathy
