Really? Does this implicate -xtintreg- as well? I only ask because
I've recently used -xtintreg- to fit pooled TSCS models with an
ordinal-level dependent variable (the nearest best thing in Stata
9.2), and even then you have to assume random effects when using it
(unfortuately, there is no fixed-effect equivalent; but with my
football data, this condition wasn't too restrictive, and I could
always circumvent it by mean-centering). However, although my ODV
contained lots of 0s, it was not in any way censored.
