Dear all,
I am using a very large dataset (N=1.3m) to analyse the effect of a categorical
variable on gestational age (continuous variable). I used linear regression
(regress) but as you would probably expect the residuals are not normally
distributed. I used qreg but the results do not look right.

Could anyone tell me what is the best analysis for continuous gestational
please.

Many Thanks
Ali
