A large body of the charitable donation literature is based on the Tobit model (Tobin 1958).
Tobit regression model (1958), as reported by Long (1997) was used.
Empirical Model of Tobit Regression: A question of great interest to policymakers is why efficiency differentials occur across farmers from the same farming system.
Although we used unbalanced panel data, at the enterprise level between 1998 and 2007 (although the data from 2004 could not be used because they lacked key indicators), the panel Tobit model can also be used for estimation and might generate more effective estimation results (He and Fan 2013, Wang and Xiao 2013).
The Tobit method was thus used, following methods presented by Barclay, Smith, & Watts (1995) and Dickens et al.
The dependent variable is the inefficiency score of hospitals, defined as the reciprocal of efficiency, to simplify the Tobit regression.
And yet, besides the prominent inclusion of the seventh work in the Allegory of Mercy of 1342, joined by those archival invocations, the mention of two copies of (presumably) the Book of Tobit kept in the company headquarters, and records of the annual banquets of the confratelli celebrating his feast, esteemed legends and additional documentation further suggest that burial of the dead was elemental to the purpose of the Misericordia from its earliest years.
These coefficient estimates could not be replicated in the fixed-effects and Tobit models, however, and must therefore be interpreted with caution.
When considering the random effects Tobit model for workers, we find that relative to G1 all of the other groups exhibit consistently negative wage effects.
The ultimate time of need, of course, is the hour of death, and the book of Tobit continues the development of the theology of charity to include salvation in the life to come:
Like Tobit, we should help bury not only our own deceased friends and family members, but others as well.
Because the data are left-censored by the detection limit of the WBC machine, we used Tobit regression for statistical analysis; however, Tobit regression has several flaws that reduce its usefulness and validity.
