Is there an accepted criteria for use of mvprobit over two or more separate probit equations? My only lead so far, from the published literature using mvprobit, tells me that mvprobit is best if outcome variables are correlated but not so correlated that dependantIt is not so much that the depedent variables are correlated, but that

variables should be collapsed into a single variable.

the error terms are correlated. I think of it as there is some

unobserved variable that influences all dependent variables. Given my

simplistic mind I need a concrete variable, I often think about it in

terms of smart respondents are more likely to be succesful interms of

dependent variable 1 and dependent variable 2 (assuming you haven't

measured IQ or something like that). In other words the criterium is

mostly theoretical.

Hope this helps,
