Hello,

I am just learning how to use multiple imputation in MPlus.

I used the data imputation command and asked for 10 data sets to be saved.

DATA IMPUTATION:
IMPUTE = ESUP EBAR ESE EOE EINT EGOALS AS;
NDATASETS = 10;
SAVE = NSFTIME1.IMP*.DAT;

Where is the data saved? Can I directed the program to save the data sets in a particular folder?

Thanks for your help!

Rachel

The data sets names are in the folder the input file is in unless you specify otherwise in the SAVE option.

Thank you; however, the data sets are not showing up in that folder. How can I specify which folder to save to in the SAVE option?

You can specify exactly where you want them using the full directory, for example,

SAVE = c:/rachel/NSFTIME1.IMP*.DAT;

If this does not help, send your output and license number to support@statmodelc.om.
