*Thanks very much for your suggestions.
*Yes, I noticed the presence of a lot of commands new and old for
multiple imputation.
*My choice is on "mi" in Stata 11. See the follwing steps:

use (1)
mi set mlong (2)
mi register imputed age bmi (3)
set seed 29390 (4)
mi impute mvn age bmi = attack smokes hsgrad female, add(10) (5)
mi estimate: logistic attack smokes age bmi hsgrad female (6)

*Suppose that missing values were on the dependent variable "attack"
(Y) and my interest is not in the logistic estimation but just in
*obtaining a complete Y.

*Assuming m=10, what about taking the mean of each missing and then
imputed observation for Y? Does it make sense or anyone *has another
