First, I'm trying to follow your suggestion about using the command >if but I have 12 variables: do you think I could use it the same?(sorry, if pheraphs my question it's a bit silly: but isn't this method the same as dropping observations? I mean Sytata automatically won't take care of the observations which hhavve variables outside the range?) Second, I must realize a regression using a logit model: what's the equivalent command as qreg I could use in that case? Third, I'd like to try also with the method of transformation: could you give me some suggestion about what transformstion should I perform? thank you again to everybody for your support. Hello!

First, is this a sattistical correct procedure? (Please use informative titles on Statalist messages.) No. Stata will take the new values of 0 just as literally as the old outlying values. One way to exclude outliers is by an -if- condition: e.g. regress y x1 x2 x3 if y < 10000 Naturally, there are other approaches to your problem including 1. a robust technique. I've found -qreg- very good. 2. transformation. 3. -glm- with a nonlinear link (e.g. log). ______________________________________________________________________ Scarica il nuovo Yahoo!
