I transferred data from an existing stata data set to MPLUS by using the stata2mplus command.

However, when I ran some basic descriptive statistics in MPLUS my variable means were way off.

I checked to be sure the order of the variables were correct. Any idea on why my variable means may be way off?

It would seem that you are reading the data incorrectly. If you can't figure it out, please send the input, data, output, and your license number to support@statmodel.com.

Any suggestions on why it would read incorrectly? I double checked the order of the variables- they are correct.

I would have to see it to answer that question. If it were from SPSS, I would guess blanks for missing data but with Stata I really don't know.
