A couple of days ago I announced that there was a 
bug in -dirifit- and that I had put a corrected 
version on my website till -dirifit- was updated 
on ssc. Thanks to Kit this has now been done, so 
there is no need for my site anymore and -dirifit-
has been removed from my site. Users of -dirifit-
are encouraged to update their version of -dirifit-.

-dirifit- can be used to fit a model on multiple 
explained/dependent/y variables that are proportions 
(and thus are all larger than zero and add up to one). 
For instance, for many municipalities you have data 
on the proportion of their budget spend on social 
issues, economic issues and security issues, and you 
want to explain them using the political orientation 
of the governing parties. It is described in a bit 
more detail on 
and an example with data is shown on
