Abstract: inorm is an implementation of Schafer's NORM program for multiple imputation based on the multivariate normal distribution (using the EM algorithm and a data augmentation MCMC). By default it uses a Windows plug-in to perform the calculations but an option allows non-Windows operation using Mata. (The latter method is much slower.) Support is not available for this package.
