st: replacement of missing values [was: RE: Help]
Please use informative headings for your posts,
as requested in the FAQ and repeatedly on this list.
The first non-missing value in each household is
bysort hhid (indicode member) : gen firstnonmiss = indicode
except that this will return missing if all values
in any household are missing.
so it sounds as if you want to impute like this
replace indicode = firstnonmiss if mi(indicode) & member == 1
I can't see that -collapse- could help here.
