Dear Panos,

Hope the following lines of code will be useful.

. gen pnum = _n;  
. sort pnum; 
. gen age_grpi = age_grp; 
. save data.dta, replace;

. hotdeck age_grpi using imp,store keep(pnum age_grpi); 
. sort pnum; 
. use imp1; 
. sort pnum; 
. merge pnum using data; 
. tab _merge ; 
. drop _merge; 
. sort pnum; 
. save data, replace;  
. d,s;

Dear All,

I would welcome your advice on the following query that i have.

I have collected survey data.  Some information are missing.  I suspect that
they go missing in a random rather a systematic way.  For this reason, I
that i could use STATA command HOTDECK, because i like its underlying

I am trying to use the above command, and it does not work.  here, my syntax

hotdeck age_grp, (trust)

Looking at the stata's response, i see that it is looking for the

1.  command(command) 
2. store.

Regarding the first complain, I looked at the help-file and it comes with a
syntax of the regression.  I wonder if I would possibly use 
a non-regression command?

Regarding the 2nd complaint, i cannot see any example in the help-file and
hence it is difficult to follow its logic.

I would be most grateful for your comments.

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.  I look forward to
from you.

Kindest Regards
