That depends on what it is that you are trying to explain. With a -tobit- model there are multiple ways in which you can interpret your dependent variable and the answer depends on which one you want to use, see e.g. (Breen 1996). I remember that you asked pretty much the same question some time ago, and I gave you pretty much the same answer (probably with the same reference). This is not because I am mean, but because it is absolutely necesary that you and only you decide which interpretation you choose. It is not that one way of interpreting the dependent variable is right and the other is wrong, they just answer different research questions. We obviously cannot tell you which research question you should answer. That is your decision. -- Maarten Richard Breen (1996) Regression Models: Censored, Sample Selected, or Truncated Data.
