Thanks to Kit Baum, -tpm-, a module for estimating two-part models for mixed discrete-continuous outcomes, is now available at SSC. In two part models, a binary choice model is estimated for the probability of observing a zero versus positive outcome. Then, conditional on a positive outcome, an appropriate regression model is estimated for the positive outcome. -tpm- focuses on continuous outcomes modeled using -regress- or -glm-. When the outcome is a count variable, such models are known as hurdle models. Of special note is that -tpm- allows the user to leverage the capabilities of -predict- and -margins- to calculate predictions and marginal effects from the combined first- and second-part models.

-tpm- can be installed from SSC. Type -findit tpm- in your Stata command line and look for
tpm from
