Murali Kuchibhotla <muralik@iastate.edu>: A better question might be: Is there a way to correct for this in the real world? Probably not, in most senses. Think of it as a logit/probit regressing "survival" on the k variables in X and a training dummy T and the k interactions T*X, so you have at least k+1 endogenous variables measuring the effects of training. You could switch to an -ivprobit- model if you had a large number of instruments, but that seems unlikely (plus, I think you would want an -ivcloglog- command which does not exist). One way forward is to reweight the samples so they look identical on observables, using propensity scores, as described in http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=st0136 and elsewhere (the sample will look identical in the sense that a -hotelling- test would fail to reject the null that the mean of X is the same in the training group and the non-training group--the distributions may differ in other ways). But this corrects only for selection on observables, not unobservable differences--for the latter, you need training to be randomly assigned, for a start. Or you need a very convincing natural experiment.
