st: RE: xttobit with fixed effect???
A standard tobit fixed effect model is inconsistent for the same reasons
that are probit/logit fixed effects models. The fixed effects cannot be
treated as incidental parameters in non-linear models without biasing the
other model coefficients (as long as N > T). Bo Honore (econ professor at
Princeton) has written a paper and provides Gauss code for estimating a
tobit fixed effect model taking a similar approach to the Chamberlain
conditional fixed effect logit estimator which exists in Stata (clogit). I
gather that is should not be too difficult to rewrite this program as a
Stata program if desired, but that is just an educated guess.
