mim wants an identifier of the imputed data set.  If SAS produces such an indicator, simply rename it _mj or generate _mj=SASindicator.  Otherwise, you will need to create it/

Hello, does anyone know what this error message really means?: "imputation
identifier variable _mj is either missing or not numeric".   I have 5 datasets that have been imputed in SAS, and now would like to use them for descriptive analysis in Stata. Below is what I've done. What am I doing wrong? Thank you very much in advance!  


mimstack, m(5) sortorder(id)
istub("data") nomj0

Thanks a lot for the helpful information, Tony and Steve! Will read the instruction and have a try soon.

To Tony's response I would only add: read the help for Stata's survey
commands ("help survey" will start you out. Since you have Stata 9.2,
pdf's of the manual pages are not available, but the -help- system is
also quite good.  The major difference between running survey commands
in SAS and Stata is that in SAS, one specifies the survey design
variables as statements in statements for each procedure; in Stata,
one uses the -svyset- command prior to running other survey commands.
I haven't run -mim-, but since it is a prefix command, your commands
will have a double-prefix structure:

mim , [mim options]:  svy:
