Dear Ben,
The commands are:

predict xb if e(sample), xb
gen lambda1=normden(xb)/norm(xb)

regress logwage eduf1 eduf2 experience exp2 occ1 occ2 occ3 occ4 occ5 occ7 occ8 occ9 sizemed sizelarge ten ten2 if wave==8 & hourwork>8 & country==1 & male==1
estimates store male

regress logwage lambda1 eduf1 eduf2 experience exp2 occ1 occ2 occ3 occ4 occ5 occ7 occ8 occ9 sizemed sizelarge ten ten2 if wave==8 & hourwork>8 & country==1 & female==1
estimates store female

results
(high estimates: male; low estimates: female)

Mean prediction 1 = 2.36937
