Johanna Lepeule:
You can use continuous variables in both parts. However, the linearity 
assumption in the inflate part is in terms of log odds and not in terms 
of y. So looking at a scatter of y versus continuous x won't tell you 
anything about the feasibility of this assumption.

Dear Stata listers,

I use zip and zinb models.
I think I can use continuous variables in the inflate part (binary part) of
the model if I check the linearity assumption between the continuous x
variable and the Y variable. Is it right ?
However, I am not sure if I can use continuous variables in the Poisson or
Negative binomial part.

Does anyone have suggestions ?
