Hi Clara, Here’s an example of how you can generate the equivalent of predict y, ystar (ll, ul) “by hand”: sysuse auto, clear generate wgt=weight/100 tobit mpg wgt, ll(17) ul(24) predict y1, ystar(17, 24) predict xb, xb gen a = (17-xb)/[sigma]_b[_cons] gen b = (24-xb)/[sigma]_b[_cons] gen y2 = 17*normal(a) + 24*(1-normal(b)) + (normal(b)-normal(a))*xb + [sigma]_b[_cons]*(normalden(a)-normalden(b)) As you can see y1 and y2 are identical (except for rounding differences). See Maddala (1983), p. 161, or Cong (2000) for the relevant formulas. I hope this helps. Arne References Cong, R. 2000. sg144: Marginal effects of the tobit model. Stata Technical Bulletin 56: 27–34.
