"ERSADO, LIRE" <L.ERSADO@CGIAR.ORG>

I am trying to estimate number of income sources(0, 1, 2,...) a given
household has access to at time t. I have 2 questions (1) although the
dependent variables (i.e.,the number of income sources) can be
considered
ordered, do you think ordered probit is a good model to estimate it?
(2) As
right censoring would be appropriate since there are only very few
cases
with, say, more than 4 different income sources per household, is
there is a
way to incorporate censoring into ordered probit in STATA?

>>> This sounds a counted scale, and some model which treats it
as such is therefore suggested.

In addition, where's the censoring? The fact that a distribution
falls off rapidly doesn't make it censored.
