One more question: > > In principle yes. you would need to make sure that the > imputations are done using information from your one > country that has missing nett (or gross I forgot) income, > but than afterwards include all the other countries. So how do I do that: I have a dataset with, let's say, 10 countries, and I would like to impute values for only 3 countries because in these, many gross wages are missing. Is there an option in -ice- like: if country==2? Or should I separate the 3 countries from the file, use ice, and then append all 3 again to the main dataset? It is probably easier to impute all missings (there are a few in the other countries aswell) of the gross income, so I would include country as an explanatory variable - but I think this would be less exact as doing it for each country separately. I am also not sure which dataset to use after -ice-. Let's say I specify the option m(5) of -ice- for generating 5 datasets, do I in the end use number 5 for my estimations? If I do ice for the 3 countries separately, I cannot append all, because the variables that are created in the ice proecedure will not be the same in all datasets, right?
