Dear Stas:- Thank you very much for your help. I appreciate your taking the time to answer my questions. My data set is small, but my problem is missing values. I have about 441 observations from a random sample survey with (data includes weights), but casewise deletion results in only 340 cases. I am using the data to generate 4 logit models. Some of my missing data are dummy variables. I would like to 1) generate summary statistics for my data (means, ranges, standard deviations), 2) generate 4 logit models, 3) calculate predicted probabilities given certain values of the independent variables. I just don't know how to handle the missing value problem, and am open to suggestions. I would like to know how much you charge for consulting, and how you might be able to help me. I do not have grant money now, but would like to know what your rate is anyway. Thanks!

If it's not in the syntax diagram, then you cannot do this. I think -ice- suite by Patrick Royston supports weights. If you have complex survey data, then MI gives wrong answers, anyway. You'd need to go into considerable lengths to make that right. > 2.

You would generate the squares of your variables. I think there's a debate as to whether they need to be passive or imputed variables. Either the MI manual or Royston's papers address this issue. > 3.

Do I need to do this by hand, given the model's coefficients? You would probably need to generate a set of predicted probabilities for every set of imputed values, and then aggregate them. That's a working solution; I cannot say whether it is a conceptually valid solution. -- Stas Kolenikov, also found at http://stas.kolenikov.name Small print: I use this email account for mailing lists only. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
