I believe this two-stage approach will only work if the second stage is a
linear regression model.
One possible alternative is to use -gllamm- According to the Sophia
Rabe-Hesketh's notes from the 2nd Dutch & German Users' Group meeting (
http://www.stata.com/support/meeting/2dutch/abstracts.html ) the Heckman
selection model can be estimated in -gllamm- and gllamm is able to estimate
poisson models with: family(poisson) link(log).
