st: Assign year to observations (failures) based on proportion of successes in each year. |

I am interested in conducting a logistic regression with success=1 and failure =0. My success cases have a specific year associated with them - my failures do not. I have annual columns for each covariate that are structured as: x_year, e.g. x_1998, x_1999, x1_1998, x1_1999. I have extracted the correct annual covariate value for the successes (1) using code similar to this: gen x_correct=. forval i=1998/2008 { replace x_correct if x_year == `i' & success==1 } I have many more failures than successes. I want to assign a particular year to each of the failures. I want to distribute the assignment of years to the failures based on the proportion of successes that fell in a particular year. For example: if 25% of the successful observations were in 1998, and 75% in 1999 I want to assign a year value of 1998 to 25% of the failures and 1999 to the remaining 75% of the failures. The data is panel structured, and therefore I have to do this across multiple grouping variables e.g. households. I would really appreciate any suggestions.
