I need some advice on how to go about executing a combined Box-Cox-Box-Tidwell regression for an equation in which there are about 8 independent variables. Of these, 4 are continuous variables while the remainder are dummy variables. Is there a way to run this regression such that only the dependent variable and the RHS continuous variables are transformed? What is the command?

This can be done using restrictions which can be placed using the RESTRICT and/or LAMBDA option on the command. Note that to avoid transforming zeros you could use 1 and 2 for dummies rather than 0 and 1. With binary variables it does not really matter what 2 values are used as long as you know how they are coded.

Thanks for your response. I am trying to use the FULL option but page 175 of the reference manual says the RESTRICT and LAMBDA options are not available with that option. However, I will try coding my dummies as 1 and 2.

That is correct. Restrictions are not allowed with Full or Tidwell options.
