I'm estimating a linear model, with one of the independent variables being a date of appearance. I consider the date to be a minimum date of appearance, not an obeserved one. Thus it is censored. What would be the proper estimation to approach this?
I'm using a linear model in which the dependent variable is rental price for apartment i in month t, and one of the regressors is a counting variable of some sort, for apartment i in time t. The problem is that for me, the counting in time t functions as a minimum value, and not the exact count at that time. I'm looking for an estimation to treat a variable as a minimum value for each observation.
