Here is one reason why we fit two-line models rather than a smooth curve:

In examining the relationship between two linear metabolic variables,

as a person exercise we can detect the time at which this person

changes form aerobic to anaerobic state (i.e. change in slope). That

point is what we refer to as the changepoint. Here interest lies in

estimating the changepoint.

I am a bit disappointed though that Stata is still lagging behind.

net from personalpages.manchester.ac.uk/staff/mark.lunt

then click on "loghockey" to find it.

I've tested it against the data in the paper quoted above and it produces exactly the same results. However, it is only a function to be used with nl.

Hope that is of some help
