I have 1000 data files with missing data, and need to compute averaged sample statistics (means, variances, covariances across the 1000 files) for three variables. Using the default ML estimation, I can get this using the following syntax:

INPUT INSTRUCTIONS

TITLE: Descriptive stats for dissgen 10 using ML estimation

DATA:
FILE = C:\MPlus\dissdat.10_list.dat;
TYPE = MONTECARLO;
VARIABLE:
NAMES ARE y x w;
USEVARIABLES = y x w;
MISSING = y (999);

ANALYSIS:
TYPE = BASIC;

However, I also need the averaged sample statistics using listwise deletion. When I add the command "LISTWISE = ON" to this same set of syntax, I get 1000 separate estimates, but cannot get averaged sample stats. Can you advise me about how to get these? Many thanks for your help. Anne
