Tobit Regression: How to Get Better Estimates When There Are Floor or Ceiling Effects.
Perlman, Carole L.
The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the use of tobit analysis and tobit decomposition in educational research. Tobit estimates of growth rate in the presence of a ceiling effect were compared with ordinary least squares (OLS) and weighted least squares (WLS) estimates. The tobit estimates had the smallest standard error, the smallest bias, and the smallest mean squared error. (Author)
