Hi there,

I estimated an ordered probit model for the level of
education(effective years of schooling) as a dependent variable and
matrix of M including age,sex,location,average of education in the
household as independet variables.

Now, I'm trying to simulate the educational expansion in a way that
the vector of cut_off points c(ei)  in the ordered probit model
translate leftwards by a constant vector e`>0 such that
c'(ei)=c(ei)-e` and the characteristics of M will be the same.The
program must iterate on successively higher values of e` until the
mean of simulated distribution of years of schooling converged to ten.

I've checked the "simulate" command, but I'm not savvy enough to write
a do-file to accomplish this task.
Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.

Regards,
Azam Alavi
