Craig. TRUNCATION does not support that model. But you can fit it by
simulation. Add
To the command.

Thank you for your reply, Professor Greene.  Even with this correction, I
still get the same results.  The command structure is:
truncation; LHS=Y; RHS=ONE, X, W, Z;
pds=_GROUPTI; random effects; limit=0 $
If 200 is too many periods, is it possible that I won't get an error message
(i.e., it will simply stop and report the non-panel results)?

All models save the linear regression require ;PDS=... not
STR=... You can get the PDS variable as follows:
after you do this, the variable_GROUPTI is what you need.
Replace ;STR=SCODE with ;PDS=_GROUPTI.
However, you will have a different problem. The estimator will
probably tell  you that 200 is too many periods. The log likelihood
must be computed as the product of the densities, and this is likely
to cause overflow or underflow in your case.

I am trying to estimate a random effects truncated regression model with an
unbalanced panel (the group sizes range from 1 to 200, with over 400 groups)
am unable to do so.  Specifically, I use commands akin to:
Truncation; Lhs = y; Rhs = one, x, z, w,...; str=scode; random effects;
Unfortunately, the only output I get are the non-panel truncated results,
no error messages.  Most of the independent variables are dummies.  Is there
reason for Limdep to not provide the random effects results, but also to not
provide an error message (e.g., failure to converge)?  Any assistance is
greatly appreciated.
