Tobit model

#1
Hello,

how does the Tobit model treat censored dependent variable data?
I have a dataset with zeros that actually stand for non-zero but missing observations. Which is why I don't want them to be viewed as zeros. How does Tobit apply to this?

Censored is different than 'missing'. Using a tobit model to model data that is actually just missing would be inappropriate.
