Hi,

I would like to fit the following model with quantile regression:

y ~ alpha + beta

where both alpha and beta are factors. The conceptual model I have in my

head is that alpha is a constant set of values, that should be independent

of the quantile, tau and that all of the variability arises due to beta. If

I just fit the model using the quantreg package like so:

mdl <- rq( y ~ alpha +beta, data, tau=c(0.25,0.5,0.75))

..the values of alpha that I get vary according to the tau. Is there anyway

to force alpha to be the same across all taus?

Best wishes,

Mark
