Hello Users,

I have been using the "syncmrates" command to estimate NMR, PMR, and IMR. The command used is as follows:
syncmrates v008 b3 b7 if v024==0 & v013==1 [iw=v005], cluster(v021)

For one of the countries, Stata returns this error message: 'r(cmr)' evaluated to missing in full sample"

In earlier datasets, CMR was simply omitted but I could still get estimates for the remaining mortality rates. I will appreciate if someone will suggest a solution.

Many thanks

Hi All,

I was able to solve the above problem by making modifications to the "syncmrates" ado file. Hence, I close this thread.

Best
