Multiple Imputation of dynrModel objects

```
dynr.mi(dynrModel, which.aux = NULL, which.lag = NULL, lag = 0,
which.lead = NULL, lead = 0, m = 5, iter = 5, imp.obs = FALSE,
imp.exo = TRUE, diag = TRUE, Rhat = 1.1, conf.level = 0.95,
verbose = TRUE, seed = NA)
```

See the demo, `demo(package='dynr', 'MILinearDiscrete')`

, for an illustrative example
of using `dynr.mi`

to implement multiple imputation with
a vector autoregressive model.

an object of ‘dynrMi’ class that is a list containing: 1. the imputation information, including a data set containing structured lagged and leading variables and a ‘mids’ object from mice() function; 2. the diagnostic information, including trace plots, an Rhat plot and a matrix containing Rhat values; 3. the estimation results, including parameter estimates, standard error estimates and confidence intervals.
