Dear Ben, Scott and all Statausers
Thanks a lot for helping me out on the question of estimation of the
Censored quantile regression. A few notes from my experience and interaction
with Dr. Wilhelm.
1. As I had earlier noted data failed to converge using the -CLAD procedure.
I used the -CLADTEMP procedure that was a modified version of -CLAD used by
Dr. Wilhelm. This handles the problem of convergence much better.

2. I have one question. While the -CLADTEMP procedure does handle the
convergence problem (due to the way convergence criteria is defined) both
these procedures take a long time. The -CLAD procedure with reps(200) took
around 3 hours to give me the result (suggesting that the convergence was
not met) the -CLADTEMP took around 8 hours to give me the bootstrapped
results (same number of reps)
The data that I had used had 12360 observations and 19 variables.

I was wondering if there was a more efficient (in the sense of saving time)
way to run censored regressions.

Thanks in advance

You might try -clad- published in Stata Technical Bulletin by  Dean
Jolliffe, Bohdan Krushelnytskyy and Anastassia Semykina

You might also find the program in the link below useful:
