Jyotsna,

It seems to me that your procedure might work well, altough it will only work for random effects and not for fixed effects since xtprobit is only valid for random effects.

There are two alternatives that I know of to get fixed effects (or something close to it) this are the references:

Kyriazidou, E. (1997). Estimation of a Panel Data Sample Selection Model. Econometrica. 65 (6), pp. 1335-1364.

Wooldridge, J. (1995). Selection Corrections for Panel Data Models under Conditional Mean Independence Assumptions. Journal of Econometrics. 68, pp. 115-132.

I haven't tried Kyriazidou's estimator since it has some data requirements that my data set doesn't satisfy. I have done some rudimentary attempts to estimate wooldridge's model...

Alejandro
