Dear Statalist:
I am trying to run a Tobit model regression using the svy commands in Stata 8, and I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this correctly.
My dependent variable is an expenditures variable; most of the values are zero, but a third or so are in dollars greater than zero. A Tobit model seems like the right choice. Given the design of the survey, I need to use the svy commands.
As best as I can tell, I should be using the "svyintreg" command. But that command requires me to use two dependent variables, and I don't understand what Stata's help file is telling me to do. Is my real dependent variable the first or the second of these two variables? And what should the other one be?
Thank you for your help.
