This MI data set identifier may be string; -describe- and -destring- it if needed. I personally have certain reservations against using multiple imputation with survey data. I have convinced myself that you are pulling oneself's leg with stratification: the imputation models usually cut across strata, so observations between strata cannot be assumed independent anymore. I am sure there are other problems, too. So for a more appropriate calculation, you'd probably want to drop stratification from your -svyset-. This essentially boils down to mim: <command> [pw=<sampling weight>], cluster( <PSU variable> ) if your original design was svyset <PSU variable> [pw=<sampling weight>], strata( <strata variable>) If you had finite population corrections and other stages of selection, then I don't really know what to make of them.
