Neither the original author nor the reviser of -dtobit- now works for StataCorp. That's just factual information; it's not for me to say what it does or does not imply. What's key, however, is that -dtobit- was never part of official Stata. It remains a user-written program whose author and then reviser happened also to work for StataCorp (as it now is). Thus, contrary to some statements, there is no question of suppressing or discontinuing it. It will remain archived and accessible and downloadable in STB/SJ archives indefinitely. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Kit Baum Mykhailo, I cannot test the capabilities of -dtobit- because that routine (updated for sg144_1, from SJ 4:3) does not run the example in its help file: . tobit mpg trunk weight, ll(17) Tobit regression Number of obs = 74 LR chi2(2) = 73.86 Prob > chi2 = 0.0000 Log likelihood = -163.74787 Pseudo R2 = 0.1840 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------ mpg | Coef.

However I would wonder whether you can what you need with the various options available on -mfx-, see -help tobit postestimation-.

Presumably someone from StataCorp will have a look at -dtobit-, as it was written and modified by StataCorp employees (but is not part of official Stata).
