Hi,

I use the command "dtobit" to get McDonald&Moffitt decomposition.
In using the command, there is an option ^censoring^ ,which provides marginal effects evaluated at censoring rate of the dependent variable.

I don't understand the reason why you calculate it at censoring rate.
Is there a theoretical background to do so?

Thank you.
