# Examples: MI Procedure

The Fish data described in the STEPDISC procedure are measurements of 159 fish of seven species caught in Finland’s lake Laengelmavesi. For each fish, the length, height, and width are measured. Three different length measurements are recorded: from the nose of the fish to the beginning of its tail (Length1), from the nose to the notch of its tail (Length2), and from the nose to the end of its tail (Length3). See Chapter 85, The STEPDISC Procedure, for more information.

The Fish1 data set is constructed from the Fish data set and contains only one species of the fish and the three length measurements. Some values have been set to missing, and the resulting data set has a monotone missing pattern in the variables Length1, Length2, and Length3. The Fish1 data set is used in Example 56.2 with the propensity score method and in Example 56.3 with the regression method.

The Fish2 data set is also constructed from the Fish data set and contains two species of fish. Some values have been set to missing, and the resulting data set has a monotone missing pattern in the variables Length, Height, Width, and Species. The Fish2 data set is used in Example 56.4 with the logistic regression method and in Example 56.5 with the discriminant function method. Note that some values of the variable Species have also been altered in the data set.

The Fish3 data set is similar to the data set Fish2 except some additional values have been set to missing and the resulting data set has an arbitrary missing pattern. The Fish3 data set is used in Example 56.7 and in Example 56.8.

The Fitness1 data set created in the section Getting Started: MI Procedure is used in other examples.

The following statements create the Fish1 data set:

```*-----------------------------Fish1 Data-----------------------------*

The Fish2 data set contains two of the seven species in the Fish data set. For each of the two species (Bream and Pike), the length from the nose of the fish to the end of its tail, the height, and the width of each fish are measured.

The following statements create the Fish2 data set:

```*-----------------------------Fish2 Data-----------------------------*
| The data set contains two species of the fish (Bream and Pike)     |
| and three measurements: Length, Height, Width.                     |
| Some values have been set to missing, and the resulting data set   |
| has a monotone missing pattern in the variables                    |
