This sounds like a case for two-part models if your zeros are
identifiable - e.g., cost of hospitalization for someone who isn't
hospitalized is zero.  If your response looks like a zero-inflated
Poisson or negative binomial you can use those routines.

Subject: st: Dynamic Tobit with endogenous regressors?

Are there any Stata programs (i.e., ado files) to perform a dynamic
model (with panel data, obviously) and endogenous regressors?

For those of you who want more info on my data, here it is: 
1. Dependent variable is essentially linear, but with a big cluster at
The zeros are essentially unobserved on the dependent variable, but this
due to external factors rather than self-selection (thus, Tobit should
more appropriate than a Heckman, I believe)
2. It is panel data, where the lagged value of the dependent variable
have a direct causal influence on the current value 
3. There are potentially endogenous regressors. However, I think I have
good instrument for the key [potentially endogenous] regressor.

Thank you for any help you can offer,
