Dear Ian,

thanks a lot again for your very helpful suggestions. I guess now the picture is completed in my mind and very clear.

thanks again

Dear Laura,

I'm more familiar with linear regression in the second stage, than

ordered probit. For OLS in the second stage you can calculate rho by

dividing lamdba (which is provided by the coefficient on your inverse

mills term) by sigma (the standard error of the residual, which Stata

can provide with: predict mysigma, stdr). When it comes to ordered

probit, I am not sure what the equivalent for sigma would be. Also,

the entries for both -heckman- and -heckprob- in the Stata manuals

note that Stata calculates atanh rho, rather than rho directly. Others

on the list will no doubt have an answer to this.

As for the standard errors, you might consider bootstrapping the whole

procedure.

Kind regards

Ian
