I don't think that R represents what you expect it to represent. The way you define it, R contains the current observation number for each borrower. Try the following to obtain the number of bonds issued by a particular borrower :I am running a Heckman selection model (shown below) and after this non-converging story I started playing around with my equation and noticed that my -lR- variable might be the one that's giving me trouble. -lR- is ln(R), and -R- is generated as follows: sort borrower indic signdate mtydate amount by borrower: g R = _n so -R- is the number of bonds issued by a particular borrower at each different point in time.

bysort borrower: g R = _N

and:

help _variables

In any case, have a look at the Stata reference manual. It contains a nice discussion on problems related to Heckman selection models. As suggested there, you should try to fit your model using the two-step method.

Hope this helps,
