Dear Drs Muthen,

Is it possible to run multiple imputation on a dataset with count variables? I'm using version 6.11. Also is there any way to specify maximum and minimum values for the imputed values as I'm ending up with minus values?

Many thanks,

DATA IMPUTATION is available for continuous and categorical outcomes only.

Thank you for your quick response.

Following up on the mininum and maximum questions - are there ways to limit the imputed values? We work on average workload per week, and we would like to limit the upper imputed values to the highest observed value in the population.

I checked technote7 (MI) and the 6.x handbook (chapter 11) but was unable to find information.

Thank you

Take a look at the "Values =" option in the data imputation command.

I seem to be blind. I checked twice - in two different pdf readers (not being able to copy & paste from the UG seems to sometimes bug the search function in some readers) - for "values" in the UG6, but could not find anything related to imputation. I also searched for "data imputation", but there is nothing about an option "values" either.
