You may be seeking what econometricians refer to as a "double hurdle"
model. In which case, ...
Have a look at Julian Fennema's -dhurdle- program, downloadable from
There is also a Stata Journal article by Allen McDowell (which could
have been found using -findit hurdle-):

demonstrates how the parameters of a hurdle model can be
estimated in Stata using a combination of existing commands
As far as I can recall, Julian's program is more general than the
methods suggested by Allen -- the key difference being that the former
allows for a non-zero cross-equation correlation. (Correct me if I am
