```Eduardo Nunez <enunezb@gmail.com>:
Can you tell us what kind of data these are?
It looks like you have very severe attrition, and
depending on the data you may want a hazard model,
possibly assuming uninformative censoring,
which might be simple to implement and require no imputation,
or you may believe that censoring is informative,
and either imputation or a hazard model would require untenable assumptions.
