For a frequency distribution to be accepted through the COUNTSTORE= option of PROC HPCDM, you need to estimate it with PROC COUNTREG. Unfortunately, PROC COUNTREG does not support binomial distribution. However, it does support the negative binomial distribution, which is more commonly used to model count data than the binomial distribution. If you cannot use the negative binomial distribution, then you will need to use the external counts feature of PROC HPCDM. Steps to take:
I do not understand your question about "use a constant. Can you please elaborate? Do you want to simulate with a constant value of loss count? In that case, you can create a data set that contains one row and one column with column value being the constant value of the count you want to use, and then use the steps that are listed above to simulate with that constant count. If you want the sample size to be a multiple of the constant count, specifying the multiplier as the NREPLICATES= option.
Hope this answers your questions.
