Better turned round: if Fatma knows which women have passed menopause,
then those are uncensored. If not, no go.

The women that I have in my sample are aged between 15-49. I think my dependent variable is right censored for the the women who are not reached the end of their fertility period. My question is how to write the rcpoisson command such that Stata treats the women who are below age 44 as right censored? I appreciate any help with my question, many thanks.
