st: Question on fill in missing values

Subject   st: Question on fill in missing values

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 is less than 3 (hence one or two).
I know that the missing should be 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?
Thank you!
Pamela
