flex estimates flexible models for doubly-bounded data using Bernoulli pseudo maximum likelihood. The models may have one or two shape parameters and generalize the logit specification for fractional data suggested by Papke and Wooldridge (1996, "Econometric Methods for Fractional Response Variables with an Application to 401(k) Plan Participation Rates," Journal of Applied Econometrics, 11, 619-632).
