I have a few qustions regarding postestimation commands in stata.

1. I have performed two sets of trgressions, one with OLS and the other with Tobit.
q1 is there a way to show that the estimators are consistent? Also, can we compare the consistrency properties of both?
q2. Both sets of regressions are run on orthogonalised variables. Does this information help in any way to show that the estimators are consistent directly from properties of matrix algebra without using stata commands?
Please help.
