truncreg depvar [indepvars] [if] [in] [weight] [, options]

options Description ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Model noconstant suppress constant term ll(varname|#) left-truncation variable or limit ul(varname|#) right-truncation variable or limit offset(varname) include varname in model with coefficient constrained to 1 constraints(constraints) apply specified linear constraints collinear keep collinear variables

SE/Robust vce(vcetype) vcetype may be oim, robust, cluster clustvar, opg, bootstrap, or jackknife

Reporting level(#) set confidence level; default is level(95) lrmodel perform the likelihood-ratio model test instead of the default Wald test nocnsreport do not display constraints display_options control columns and column formats, row spacing, line width, display of omitted variables and base and empty cells, and factor-variable labeling

Maximization maximize_options control maximization process; seldom used

coeflegend display legend instead of statistics ------------------------------------------------------------------------- indepvars may contain factor variables; see fvvarlist. depvar and indepvars may contain time-series operators; see tsvarlist. bayes, bootstrap, by, fmm, fp, jackknife, mi estimate, rolling, statsby, and svy are allowed; see prefix. For more details, see [BAYES] bayes: truncreg and [FMM] fmm: truncreg. vce(bootstrap) and vce(jackknife) are not allowed with the mi estimate prefix. Weights are not allowed with the bootstrap prefix. aweights are not allowed with the jackknife prefix. vce(), lrmodel, and weights are not allowed with the svy prefix. aweights, fweights, iweights, and pweights are allowed; see weight. coeflegend does not appear in the dialog box. See [R] truncreg postestimation for features available after estimation.


Statistics > Linear models and related > Truncated regression


truncreg fits a regression model of depvar on indepvars from a sample drawn from a restricted part of the population. Under the normality assumption for the whole population, the error terms in the truncated regression model have a truncated normal distribution, which is a normal distribution that has been scaled upward so that the distribution integrates to one over the restricted range.


+-------+ ----+ Model +------------------------------------------------------------

noconstant; see [R] estimation options.

ll(varname|#) and ul(varname|#) indicate the lower and upper limits for truncation, respectively. You may specify one or both. Observations with depvar < ll() are left-truncated, observations with depvar > ul() are right-truncated, and the remaining observations are not truncated. See [R] tobit for a more detailed description.

offset(varname), constraints(constraints), collinear; see [R] estimation options.

+-----------+ ----+ SE/Robust +--------------------------------------------------------

vce(vcetype) specifies the type of standard error reported, which includes types that are derived from asymptotic theory (oim, opg), that are robust to some kinds of misspecification (robust), that allow for intragroup correlation (cluster clustvar), and that use bootstrap or jackknife methods (bootstrap, jackknife); see [R] vce_option.

+-----------+ ----+ Reporting +--------------------------------------------------------

level(#), lrmodel, nocnsreport; see [R] estimation options.

display_options: noci, nopvalues, noomitted, vsquish, noemptycells, baselevels, allbaselevels, nofvlabel, fvwrap(#), fvwrapon(style), cformat(%fmt), pformat(%fmt), sformat(%fmt), and nolstretch; see [R] estimation options.

+--------------+ ----+ Maximization +-----------------------------------------------------

maximize_options: difficult, technique(algorithm_spec), iterate(#), [no]log, trace, gradient, showstep, hessian, showtolerance, tolerance(#), ltolerance(#), nrtolerance(#), nonrtolerance(#), and from(init_specs); see [R] maximize. These options are seldom used, but you may use the ltol(#) option to relax the convergence criterion; the default is 1e-6 during specification searches.

Setting the optimization type to technique(bhhh) resets the default vcetype to vce(opg).

The following option is available with truncreg but is not shown in the dialog box:

coeflegend; see [R] estimation options.
