Some people would use -nl- here, but assuming that you can scale values to values / maximum, you can still use a logit link, or linear regression on a logit transformed variable. The only obvious problem is if the bounds are attained, because logit(0) and logit(1) are indeterminate. There are some related comments in SJ-8-1 gr0032 . . . . . . .

Cox Q1/08 SJ 8(1):142--145 (no commands) tip on how to graph data on a transformed scale which explains how to plot continuous responses on a logit scale. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Sven Wiese I have a twodimensional dataset of two continious variables and want to fit a regression to the data, but I want the outcome to be an s-Curve (or logistic curve). I think it might be like fitting a polynomial to the data, but as mentioned I want to fit an s-curve, which can be expressed by the exponential function. I am aware of the logistic regression, the difference is, that my dependant variable is not binary. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
