Hello, i need your help. I am using MlWiN to run a multiple membership analysis on a data that has US census tract number. After importing the data from a stata file, I noted that the tract numbers and adjacent tracts are not imported correctly and had wrong values and original tract numbers are repeated for some of the adjacent tracts. I kept variables as double but changed variables' format to %11.0f to keep the numbers when opening it in MlWiN.

I appreciate your help. thank you!

Can you clarify which version of MLwiN you are using? Versions prior to 3 stored data as single-precision floating point, so if you are using one of these this could be why the data is getting truncated.
