Dear Stephen,
Maybe the following two articles by Wooldridge and by Lechner can help
you further:

http://ideas.repec.org/p/iza/izadps/dp91.html
I'm also trying to perform a similar estimation with stata but I'm
struggling with calculating the Inverse Mills ratio's. Could you let me
know how exactly you are implementing the procedure?
Thanks,
Miet

Subject: st: Econometrically sound to use Mills ratio after mprobit?
Hello,
I am estimating a multinomial probit for a selection equation with 3
choices and I am interested in using the inverse mills ratio
generated from the MNP in a second step equation. I know how to
implement this procedure, however, I have not been able to find any
literature that proves that the Heckman twostep estimation procedure
can appropriately and directly extend from a probit selection
equation to a multinomial probit selection equation. Does anyone
know of any papers that address this issue?
Thanks,
Stephen
