I want to use -mi impute- but am having difficulties figuring out how to adapt it to what I need. I'm using Stata 12.1 for Windows. The dataset I'm using has poor information on family income -- it's categorical and missing many values, and I need it to be continuous and complete. I want to use another dataset (that has the same independent variables as the first dataset, but also has a continuous income variable) to fit an OLS model. I want to use this model to impute continuous income on my first dataset, but I can't figure out how to use previous estimation results for imputation. Any help/ideas would be much appreciated, thanks!
