Assuming that this is based on some real example, only you know what makes sense for such data. Otherwise put, there is some context that you would need to supply before better advice became easier. The row mean is just egen rowmean = rowmean(x1 x2 x3 x4 x5) after which you can impute by replacement: qui foreach v of var x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 { replace `v' = rowmean if missing(`v') } For integers, the row median is another possibility: FAQ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Cox 3/07 How do I calculate row medians? http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/medians.html However, by most modern standards these are lousy imputation commands, partly because they take no account of relationships between the variables. Others will quite rightly recommend seeking out Patrick Royston's programs. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Daniel Sepulveda-Adams I'm having trouble finding the proper command to impute values in a given row of data. Hoping someone could direct me appropriately. Consider a row of data as follows obs x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 1 2 4 . 5 1 2 . 4 1 3 0 3 1 . . . 1 What I want to do is to fill-in the missing values as a function of the surrounding row/variable values. I presume I want to average a given missing-value's surrounding +-3 values and impute accordingly. What command or commands should I investigate? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
