After using multiple imputations, many of the variables have values that are out of the range of those variables. Once it actually created an outlier.
Should I correct for this?
Are there other things I should consider when I evaluate the imputation process.

I would leave the out of range values.

Dear Professors,

I did multiple imputation with Mplus version 7. There are several variables the minimum value of which should be 0, but the imputed values sometimes went below that.Is there a way to define the boundary of the imputed values in Mplus?

Thank you for your help.

For a continuous variable, you use the VALUES option to define the range. Have you used that?
