I would like to learn how to check the assumption in the Random Effects Tobit model that the unit-specific residuals (u) are normally distributed. Predicting u is not an option after xttobit, as can be done after xtreg. How do I assess the fit of my xttobit model to see whether I may interpret it's results?

I am using intercooled Stata 7.

I am looking forward to an answer!
