Here, 'implicate' meant 'also apply to'. Tobit models, so far as I understand them, are suitable for dependent variables which are 'left-censored', which normally means that it contains a disproportional number of zeros, much of which is information not fully realized. My argument was that my data for -xtintreg- doesn't fit that description, and that it was my understanding that it was more suitable for ordinal-level dependent variables. I could be wrong; I often am. -- Clive Nicholas [Please DO NOT mail me personally here, but at <clivenicholas@hotmail.com>. Please respond to contributions I make in a list thread here.
