Dear All, 

I have a problem which I really could use some help on! 

I have data on individuals either selecting funds for their portfolio or not 
selecting funds(1 /0 variable). For those who did select funds, I have an 
ordinal variable representing the choice of a high, medium or low risk fund 
(risk=1,2,3). I am interested only in the choice of portfolio risk, but I want 
to control for the possible selection arising from not everyone selecting 
funds. Therefore I want to simultaneously estimate an ordinal logit model and a 
Heckman selection model.  

My data looks like 

Id		First choice			Second choice

1			0				.
2			1				LOW=1
3			1				HIGH=3
4			0				.
5			1				MEDIUM=2		

Would anyone know how I can do this? Would it be possible just to do a probit 
equation on the first choice, calculate the Mills ratio, and then include these 
in the ordinal probit? 

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
