Hi everyone,

I need your help to analyze a GLIMMIX parameter estimates output using PROC MIANALYZE. The output is created by group, and for each group treatment effect is estimated with its standard error. Basically I want to pool estimates from multiple simulated datasets. Unlike PROC MI procedure imputed values are not variables but they are estimates. Thanks.

Usually, simulations are used to assess the effect of sources of variation/uncertainty that are not well accounted for by available models. The variation of parameter estimates from simulation runs is assumed to reflect the variability built into the simulation process. Thus, the estimated standard errors are usually ignored, unless you are interested in the distribution of the standard error itself. The properties (location, variance, covariance, etc.) of your set of parameter estimates can normally be investigated and summarized with SAS base procedures (univariate, corr, sgplot).

I think however that simulations should involve more than 10 repetitions. I usually go for 100 to 2000.

Why not look at the distribution of your parameter estimates with standard tools like PROC UNIVARIATE and PROC CORR?

I have the regression coefficient estimated ten times for example, each estimation has a standard error associated with it. Using Proc means or Univariate won't take into account standard errors, as far as I know. I don't know how to come up with a single value for ten coefficients, taking into account their standard errors.
