QBETA: Stata module to generate quantile-quantile plot for data vs fitted beta distribution
Abstractqbeta plots the quantiles of a variable against the quantiles of a two-parameter beta distribution. Fitting is done quietly by betafit, which should be installed separately. These programs all require Stata 8. Also included is the previous version, now renamed as qbeta4, which may be used in Stata 4 through 7. Estimation may be performed using beta4, available as part of the betafit package.
