First, note that the title "question" is not informative. You have two questions. On the second, there is an FAQ FAQ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Replacing missing values 2/03 How can I replace missing values with previous or following nonmissing values? http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/missing.html . search missing points to this. On the first, I am no survival expert, but absent a view of all your data your question looks very difficult to answer. But you can at a minimum compare the results on non-missing data and on data including imputations to see what difference it makes.
