Re: st: ordered probit with sample selection |

Late 2-cents opinion: I am not good enough to look at your code and tell you what's wrong - if any!!! Let me recap: you have probit at first stage and ordered probit at second stage. What about downloading -ssm- from SSC? -ssm- is a wrapper for -gllamm- to estimate Endogenous-Switch & Sample Selection Count, Binary & Ordinal Response Regression by maximum likelihood using adaptive quadrature (one equation estimates the likelihood of being selected or observed using a probit specification, while in the second stage a GLM is run). Please note that the command may require much time to converge. Warning: I didn't set Statalist-disturbing automatic replies. Thus please note in advance that I will be offline for the next 8 days at least, and thus unable to continue this discussion for a while.
