Dear statalist,

I tried to fit data on household food consumption to a generalized beta of second kind using 'gb2fit' command.

gb2fit dec, stats cdf(gb2cdf) pdf(gb2pdf) svy

I obtained a negative variance. How is it possible? What does it tell me?

If it is useful, notice that the sample was drawn using a two-stage stratified sampling procedure which I took into account by svyset my data.
I hope you can help me.

Thank you very much
