That is basically the problem I already warned about: Average marginal
effects imply averaging over the sample, and the sample is not easy to
define in multiply imputed data. Fortunately, Stata will give an error
message rather than give wrong results.

The solution I propose is the same as the one I proposed before,
interpret odds ratios rather than marginal effects:

mi estimate, or : logit employement alder barn

Hope this helps,
