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 gen mill2=exp(-.5*phat^2)/(sqrt(2*_pi)*normprob(phat)) 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?
