I have a question about imputation.

Is it possible to impute data in Mplus, export it and use the imputed values in SPSS? I know it is possible in Lisrel, but I can't find it in mplus.

In spss I have less (longitudinal) cases than when I run mplus analyses.

Thanks!

See SAVE option of the DATA IMPUTATION command.

If you get a different number of cases with SPSS and Mplus, you need to send the files and your license number to support@statmodel.com.

Thank you. I've tried it, but I am not convinced that I am doing it correct, because I keep getting errors.

For example:
The FILE option is not available for TYPE=MONTECARLO or TYPE=IMPUTATION. FILE will be ignored.

*** ERROR in Data command
The file specified for the FILE option cannot be found.

My input file looks like this:

DATA:
File is 'C:\Documents and Settings\Test_imputation.dat';
Type = imputation;

VARIABLE:

ANALYSIS:

MODEL:

OUTPUT:

SAVEDATA: File is imputed_data.data;

Can you tell me what is not correct about is? Thanks!

Best,
