HOW TO GET MISSINGNESS PERCENTAGE OF EACH SERIES

Postby bcchen » Thu Jun 01, 2017 4:26 pm

Hi,

I wonder if there is a quick way to create a missingness percentage table for each of the series (alpha and numeric) in a workfile? If it can be presented as a table, it is even better.

For missingness percentage, I mean, for alpha series, the blank cell number/total sample; and for numeric, the NA cell number/total sample.

Thanks in advance!

Best,
BC

You'd need to write a program that does it.

@wlookup to find the names of all the series in the workfile.
Loop through them calculating series.@obs/@obsrange and storing in a table.

thanks for the quick response Gareth!

Can you give more detail on the codes on how to store each number in a table?

Thanks!
