you don't tell us how you are imputing the data but it appears you are
not using the correct -mi impute-; you do not say how many categories
there are but you should look in the manual for -mi impute logit- and
-mi impute mlogit-

I have 2 categorical variables with missing data that I would like to impute, however when I run mi: estimate the model does not run on the multiply imputed categorical data, understandably.  I have been advised to round the imputed values for the categorical values and then use those new variables in my mi: estimate model.  Does anyone have code that will allow me to do this rounding?
