Maarten Buis (), Nicholas Cox () and Stephen Jenkins ()

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: betafit fits a two-parameter beta distribution, optionally as dependent on covariates. Stata 8 is required. Also included in this package is beta4, which also fits a two-parameter beta distribution, although to a single variable only. That may be used in Stata 4 through 7. This routine was previously circulated as beta.

Language: Stata
Requires: Stata version 8.2 (4.0 for beta4)
Keywords: beta distribution; maximum likelihood (search for similar items in EconPapers)
