Should "Multiple Imputations" Be Treated as "Multiple Indicators"?
Mislevy, Robert J.
Psychometrika, v58 n1 p79-85 Mar 1993
Multiple imputations for latent variables are constructed so that analyses treating them as true variables have the correct expectations for population characteristics. Analyzing multiple imputations in accordance with their construction yields correct estimates of population characteristics, whereas analyzing them as multiple indicators generally does not. (SLD)
