I need to fill in missing values in my dataset. For most sectors I know how many start-ups there were for each year, but the data was not given if the number of startups (st) is less than 3 (hence one or two).
Therefore, I know if the missing is 1 or 2 and I know the probability for either one. I also know how often 1 or 2 should be each given in total for each year.
I tried recode, impute, mvencode but it did not work.
Maybe someone has a hint? Thanks
Pamela

for each year and region the data looks like this:
sect st prob1 prob2 1 4
2 3 3 . 0.3 0.7
4 8
5 0
6 . 0.45 0.55
7 3
8 5
9 . 0.48 0.52
