If you are trying to do selection bias correction as in Lee (1983) then you
may want to look at the SELMLOG command.  Here's the description:

selmlog estimates linear regression models on a selected subset of
observations, where selectivity is modelled as a multinomial logit (as
opposed to univariate probit as in the Heckman model). It applies the
two-step method proposed by Bourguignon, Fournier and Gurgand (CREST, 2001,

I have been trying to do two-step estimation using mlogit.  After
mlogit estimation, I calculate the lambda values for each choice as

pj= exp(v'b)   where v is the set of explanatory variables in the
selection    equationand b is the set of coefficients. j=0,1,...



and then including the lambda values, I estimate the equation of
primary interest which is a wage eqution in my case.

However, these estimation results do not give the efficient standard
errors. My question is that is there a stata rutin to obtain efficient
standard errors? How can I do the Heckman-correction to obtain
efficient standard errors.

Tahnk you in advance
