Abstract.  We present the new laplace command for estimating Laplace regression, which models quantiles of a possibly censored outcome variable given covariates. We illustrate laplace with an example from a clinical trial on survival in patients with metastatic renal carcinoma. We also report the results of a small simulation study.
