Thanks, Tony. How can I get further insight from Patrick? Also thanks for Stas' suggestion. To the listserv, my question is: is it a common practice to do descriptive analysis (mean, proportion, cross-tabs) using all design features, including weight, strata, and cluster variables? I had assumed that it is....But then dopeople use the descriptive statistics to make inference to the population? Any info and advice would be appreciated.

Now I have renamed the dataset indeitifier variable according to your advice. Since I am using Stata 9.2 and therefore don't have a pdf manual, may I ask for further clarification: After I run mim: svy: mean smoke Another error message appeared: observation identifier variable _mi is either missing or not numeric Is there an easy way to create such an observation identifier variable? If it is too complicated, I will just give up the idea of using Stata but use SAS for such an analysis. Thanks for your suggestion in advance!

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: Steve On Mon, Feb 22, 2010 at 2:09 PM, Lachenbruch, Peter <Peter.Lachenbruch@oregonstate.edu> wrote: > a) read the volume on multiple imputation (pdf or manual) > b) consider using mim (see help file, or findit mim) > c) is 5 sufficient number of imputations?

Could anyone give me some hint? I have done such an analysis before in SAS, but would like to learn how to do it in Stata. Thank you very much.
