I have a variable (delivery time) with several missing values. I was wondering if I could replace them by a fix number (e.g. 1000) and then bin the variable with the numeric binner (e.g. bin 1: age 12-20, bin 2: 20-50, bin 3: age 1000 [missing values] and then continue to work only with the grouped values.
Will this methode distort the result?
Best regards :)
