I have code for a negative binomial outcome and binary treatment model estimated using maximum simulated likelihood. It should fit your case well. It also estimates models for gamma-distributed outcomes. You can get the package, -treatreg2-, by typing

net from

from the command line in Stata.

I think Mullahy published a GMM estimator for this specific case, but
if you are willing to treat the endogenous dummy as continuous, you

ssc inst ivpois
probit x otherx* z*
predict phat
ivpois y otherx*, endog(x) exog(phat)

until you find a better estimator.

dear all,
I would like to estimate a poisson model which includes an endogenous
dummy variable. To be more precise, this dummy captures a "treatment
effect", hence I would like to model the selection process that
underlies it by a probit model, and use the fitted probabilities as
instruments for the dummy.
Does anyone of you know a Stata command (either built in or not) that
allows to estimate such a model?
thank you very much for any help
