Thank you for thining about this.

Re: Imputation to level 2 variable: vary within group?

Re: Error message for categorical variable imputation

Dear Jamie Thank you so much for your suggestion, but I have updated the REALCOM last week, and the error messages are from updated REALCOM.

Re: Error message for categorical variable imputation

Thank you for the reply. I am sorry for unclear explanation, previously. I have been using multicategory variables as response variables. But, as they were never accepted except for 1 ordered categorical variable, I thought of trying to use dummy variables to impute these unaccepted categorical vari...

Re: How to make changes in MCMC estimation settings?

I will consult to people about the ideal settings, but for ...

Hi. I have been having a problem to impute some categorical variables. These variables have 4, 10, and 12 categories. Ideally, I would like to use m. as they are not strictly ordered, but could do with o. The problem is that both o. and m. do not work for all these three variables. For example, a va...
