Astrid and all,

-treatreg2- is a package I've been working on, but, in part because I haven't had the time to write things up, not made completely public. It is available for installation, however, via

-treatreg2- models binary treatmen with a number of possibilities for the distribution of outcomes (currently negbin-1 and 2, and gamma, with more coming soon). The treatment and outcome equations are "tied" via a latent factor which can be either symmetric (normal) or skewed (chi square or a reflected chi square - for negative skewness). The model is estimated by MSL.

Does anybody know where to find a more detailed description (than is available in the help-file) of what the treatreg2 code does?

Like what is the theoretical foundation of the estimation, and does it estimate the equations simultaneously or stepwise?

Thanks in advance.
