Even if such a model exists in STATA, the model you propose, I believe, is not correct. There is a fairly substantial literature on estimating demand systems with binding non-negativity constraints (and, in your case, apparently binding upper constraints as well). The problem is that when an observation is at such a corner solution, the relevant RHS variable is no longer the market price, but the shadow price. In addition, there is a statistical issue that arises in such a model referred to as coherency. See the paper on my website (which is not published for a list of references in this area: http://faculty.smu.edu/millimet/pdf/corners.pdf).

Specifically, I am trying to estimate a system of 2 demand equations which are censored at 0 and 1. I know that I can estimate a single equation using the “tobit” command but how can I estimate two equations simultaneously? Here is the model I would like to estimate: For 3 goods the observed expenditure share on each is: C, S, H C* and S* represent the desired expenditure share on each good: C*=Xb1+e1 S*=Xb2+e2 Where X is a matrix of variables, b1 and b2 are coefficients, and e1 and e2 are errors. The system is defined as: C= 0 if C*<=0 C* if 0<C*<1 1 if C*>1 S= 0 if S*<=0 S* if 0<S*<1-C 1-C if S*>1 H=1-C-S The equations for C and S are each two limit tobits. But estimating this system simultaneously is complicated. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot. Mike __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
