This is a non-trivial exercise (just look at the relevant section of
the -biprobit- entry in the Manuals)

What you could do is derive a predicted probability for whichever
outcome combination you were interested in, given a particular set of
covariates. Then recalculate the predicted probability with a marginal
change in one covariate holding all the others at the value used in
the first calculation. This gives a change in predicted probability.
-mvppred- after -mvprobit- gives you the ability to calculate Prob
that each binary outcome = 1, and Prob that each binary outcome = 0.
(If you want other outcome combinations, then you would need to use
_gmvnp(): see Cappellari & Jenkins article in Stata Journal 6(2) --
preprint at ISER website under working papers.)
