Are you sure you need a Tobit-class model?  I find that most people
using -tobit- would in fact be better off with -poisson- or -glm- (and
a search of the Statalist archives turns up many instances of this
advice).  The analogy to -ivtobit- is -qvf- (findit qvf) described in
Stata Journal Volume 3, Number 4 and at:

Thanks to Brian for the clarification. Given that, are there
any options in Stata to deal with a tobit with and
endogenous variable that is itself censored?
