Erik, thanks for you reply. Here the parameters of interest are the parameters of the earnings equation. The context is international migration. z=1 refers to migrants, z=0 refers to non-migrants. What I need is sample selectivity corrected returns to characteristics in the lnw equation. In the data I observe lnw for a given individual either for z=1 or z=0, but not for both (previous message is misleading - sorry ). I.e. for those who migrate I only observe lnw|z=1 and for non-migrants I only observe lnw|z=0. I want to predict the earnings of a migrant had that individual not migrated ( and vice versa for non-migrants). Given returns to characteristics of the same individual can be different in the host country and in the source country I want to estimate the model separately for z=1 and z=0, and use the estimated coefficients for my prediction. >-----Original Message----- >From: Erik Ø.
