Dear Adel,
I do agree with Jay's previous reply.
It seems that you are forcing your data to support an impossible task.
I would recommend to take another look at your predictors and rule out those
that are not substantive for your analysis.

Best wishes,
Carlo

HI guys
When I run Tobit regression model , I have 138 observations and only 19
variables include 13 dummy variables. However, when I reduce the number of
variables to 18, I get results, if 19 , no results obtained , can anyone
tell me what is the problem and how to be sorted Ade

As Adel has probably heard during some statistics class, according to a long
lasting rule-of-thumb, researcher should have around 20 observations for
each predictor included in her/his multiple linear regression model. I would
assume that this guidance may sound interesting for Tobit models, too.
Last time I came across this recommendation was in: Katz MH. Multivariable
Analysis. A Practical Guide for Clinicians, 2nd edition. Cambridge:
Cambridge University Press, 2006: 81.

Kindest Regards,
Carlo

variables when I run Tobit regression model, No results obtain, but if if I
reduce the number of variable , I can obtains result, is there any
relationship between number of variables, number and observations and
