Stata's logit camand can compute several types of residuals but
probit does not compute any residuals at all. Why is probit
different from logit with respect to residuals?

You can get those residuals when estimating that model with -glm-.

Thanks Maarten, that helps a lot. But it still leaves unanswered why
you can't compute residuals after the probit command.
I know that my answer didn't answer your question, and neither does
this answer, the true answer is that I don't know the answer, just a
quick workaround.

be...
