Nick, Thanks for your repply. Yes, there are structural reasons why only those responses are possible. People included in the regression are members of a group defined as people paying 2 to ten times a reference number. I was thinking in ologit, but as there is cardinality involved, I was looking for a method that would consider all the available information, that is a method that would consider both the cardinal and ordinal properties of my data. I was thinking on reescaling the dataset so that 2 becomes 0, 3 becomes 1, and so on. I know that this would not solver the high frequency of 10's (8's after reescaling), but I think my coefficients will still consistently estimate population parameters, as maximum likelihood estimation with poisson is robust to incorrer especification of the distribution as long as the conditional expectation function is correctly specified... Would it be terrible to do such a reescalation? Thank you again!
