I have a specific problem: I need to know what is the command that would allow me to make the correction of some data by age group and for years:

The data are as follows:
Mortality data of: uterine cervix, uterine corpus and uterine cancer not otherwise specified

The problem is as follows:
Many deaths from cancer of the uterine cervix and uterine corpus are inadequately coded as “uterine cancer not otherwise specified”

 
I need to know which command in Stata will do the following:

To correct this lack of specificity in the assignment of uterine cancer deaths  by allocating the deaths coded as “unspecified” to either uterine cervix or uterine corpus cancer according to the age-specific proportions specified as uterine cervix and uterine corpus cancer in each years. 

thanks
