Dear Statalisters,

my dependent variable is collateral as % of loan value reported by firms in BEEPS surveys. Although this variable should be continuous the data are mostly concentrated around "round" values. I interpreted the problem as a case of measurement error in the dependent variable and I suspect that the error is not independent from the value of the variable (it should be smaller in proximity of "round" values). 
To deal with this problem I created intervals of 10 points each and run an interval regression on each lower and upper bound around the reported value. Now I have 45 intervals and some of them are empty.
I first estimated the model including the 0s in the estimation but now I would like to check my results with a selection model. Could you please tell me if you think it is possible to include the Inverse Mills Ratio from the Probit model ( collateral yes/no) within the Interval regression model and if you think that interval regression is the right strategy to deal with measurement error.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
