Others have mentioned the procedures you might want to use.

You can also use a transformation like logit(y), or any other inverse CDF of a continuous unbounded RV and then use -regress-, though you should be wary of extreme observations (near 0 or 1) as outliers in the transformed space can seem quite innocuous in the untransformed space. I never thought about it before but the Cauchy link might be useful in this regard.

Dear Statalist,
I would like to run a regression in which the dependent variable has
values that fall between zero and one by definition.
Can anyone suggest me a way to deal with this problem?
Thank you very much,
Best,
AR
