INclude Tobit model

Tobit models allow modeling of the dependence of a non-negative variable with respect to an independent variable: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobit_model

The non-negative variable can be a social benefit (housing benefit, child allowance, etc.), the independent variable can be the income, the family size, etc.

Useful for evaluating public policies: social expenses, tax benefits,etc.
