Dear Statalisters:
 If the interest is to run a linear regression  of a
continuous variable as the response, say level of beta carothen, and for
very small values the results are zero because the equipment can only show
values equal or greater than .04, the use of -tobit- can be an statistical
alternative?
Let´s assume there is no money to buy a better device.
Best regards,
josé maria

Dear Austin and Nick:
thank you very much for the comments.
