Right-censored Poisson regression model


  • Rafal Raciborski

    () (StataCorp)


I present the rcpoisson command for right-censored count-data mod-els with a constant (Terza 1985, Economics Letters 18: 361–365) and variable censoring threshold (Caudill and Mixon 1995, Empirical Economics 20: 183–196). I show the effects of censoring on estimation results by comparing the censored Poisson model with the uncensored one. Copyright 2011 by StataCorp LP.
