Andrea - Yours is indeed an interesting problem - I was hoping someone else on the list might have a better idea, but as a starter, you could try modeling n|N and N separately. For n given N, (only for those cases where N > 0 )you could try GEE. In Stata this would be -xtgee- with a binomial family and logit link to coount for the dependence within firms. The command would look something like xtgee n x1 x2 x3 if N>0,fam(bin N) link(logit) robust i(firm) For N you could try a zero-inflated Poisson or negative binomial with random effects (-xtpoisson- or -xtnbreg-) Al Feiveson -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Andrea Rispoli Sent: Wednesday, December 31, 2008 8:44 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: regression with dependent variable ranging from 0 to 1 yes On Tue, Dec 30, 2008 at 10:28 PM, Feiveson, Alan H.
