Hi all,

I am trying to calculate age standardised incidence rates using -distrate- which is a user written package (accessible by -ssc install distrate-) in Stata 11.2, but need help in order to identify where I have missing levels of data in my dataset.

I have 5 year age groups and am looking at type 1 and type 2 disease. For type 1 disease I have observations in every age group from 0-4 and 85+, but in type 2 disease there is an absence of observations in 0-4 and 10-14 age group. What I would like to do is evaluate whether there are any 'missing' observations and insert a row for that age group and set the number of observations to 0 - this may happen many times in my data as I have multiple years of data. My data look like this:

dis	yydx	age_grp	count
1	2003	0-4	321
1	2003	5-9	266
1	2003	10-14	201
1	2003	15-19	167
1	2003	20-24 150 
2	2003	5-9	266
2	2003	15-19	167
2	2003	20-24 100

I would like to be able to change it to this:

dis	yydx	age_grp	count
1	2003	0-4	321
1	2003	5-9	266
1	2003	10-14	201
1	2003	15-19	167
1	2003	20-24 150 
2	2003	0-4	0
2	2003	5-9	266
2	2003  10-14 0
2	2003	15-19	167
2	2003	20-24 100

Any help greatly appreciated.

Best wishes

Tim
