Re: st: logit with sample selection
Hi Ian, Jean, Anders, and Maarten,
Thank you everyone for responding to my query.
I am quite sure that the formula suggested by Ian wouldn't
work because, as indicated by Maarten, it would have to be
something that reflects the bivariate logistic
distribution. I am aware of the bivariate normal formula
mentioned below but it wouldn't apply for a logit model.
I was only wondering whether there is something similar for
a logit model because I had found this link in the
archives, which shows the IMR calculation for -mlogit- (but
not for -logit- explicitly.) Check this:
As for Jean's suggestion about -heckprob-: I didn't want to
use that because 1) I have already tried it and it's taking
forever to converge, and 2) -logit- fits my data better
than -probit- and so, I wanted to use something like
"heckman + logit".
Finally, Anders' suggestion: it is not immediately clear to
me how -gllamm- is applicable in my case but I will check
In any case, thanks a lot for the discussion.
If anyone can check the above link and add something for
-logit-, that'd be great.
