st: Why estimation in first step of two-step Heckman model is different from Probit model for selection
I estimated two-step Heckman model using
heckman y x1 x2, select(z1 z2) two
predict mill1, mill
I also estimated Probit model using
probit y z1 z2
predict phat, xb
why the coefficients for z1 z2 in two estimation are different in the
estimating procedure? I also calculate the inverse mill's ratio (IMR)
for the probit model, and not surpriingly, the two IMRs are different?
Which one is more reliable when y is a binary variable? Thanks!
