Thanks, patrick:
The real situation I am facing is: I have a variable y
which has certain values missing, I would like to
impute the missing values based on a predicted
percentil. So the x variable contains a percentile
that I will use to forecast the y variables for those
missing.
Example:
y x
200 .
100 .
. 0.5
. 0.1
234 .
How can I assign a value for those missing y(s) based
on the perceniles from x?
In this example, I guess the y value corresponding to
x=0.5 is 200 and for x=0.1 is 100. Note I am using
the distribution of y only for those observed.
Thanks.
