Thanks Maarten,

How would I estimate this using Stata?

Would I be correct to say that if I wanted to estimate the joint distribution of (Y, X | Z), then I could do so by switching regression, which would first estimate (Y | X, Z) then (X | Y, Z), the product of which would give me (Y, X | Z)?

Reza:
No, using Bayes theorem:
f(x,y|z) = f(x|y,z) f(y|z)
HTH,
