Amrita and Alejandro,

Both of you are correct. I guess there should be a way to do Heckman
for Panel data and I had laid out a possible method, a while ago, but I have
not written such a program. I think I will need it so if you are keen,
I could exchange notes with you, once I am along some way.

These are the steps I had thought of:
1. Estimate the selection equation via xtprobit.
2. Get estimates of the Mills ratio.
3. Use the Mills Ratio as an explanatory variable in the response equation
where only the truncated dependent variable is considered, i.e. estimate
this equation for selection =1. This is estimated via xtreg, re with the Hausman
test to check for specification.
4. One would have to account for inter-equation correlation and bootstrap
the standard errors accordingly.

Amrita,

I have asked the same question before and from what I have learned I can tell you that there is no command in Stata that can do Heckman with panel (except of course the pooled case). Cluster is not equivalent to fixed effects or random effects. And there are no user written commands either

I think you are right about tobit.

Alejandro
