Regression with Discrete Dependent Variable

Regression models for limited and qualitative dependent variables. The module currently allows the estimation of models with binary (Logit, Probit), nominal (MNLogit), or count (Poisson, NegativeBinomial) data.

Starting with version 0.9, this also includes new count models, that are still experimental in 0.9, NegativeBinomialP, GeneralizedPoisson and zero-inflated models, ZeroInflatedPoisson, ZeroInflatedNegativeBinomialP and ZeroInflatedGeneralizedPoisson.

See Module Reference for commands and arguments.
