## Binary, fractional, count, and limited outcomes

Is your response binary (for example, employed or unemployed), ordinal (education level), count (number of children), or censored (ticket sales in an existing venue)? Stata has maximum likelihood estimators—logistic, probit, ordered probit, multinomial logit, Poisson, tobit, and many others—that estimate the relationship between such outcomes and their determinants. A vast array of tools is available to analyze such models. Predict outcomes and their confidence intervals. Test equality of parameters or any linear or nonlinear combination of parameters. And much more.
