st: Combining Heckman and Tobit Models |

I would like to run a Tobit model using the the Heckman correction. I believe there are 2 options available to me. One is to do it using the commands available in the cmp.ado file. However, I run into 2 problems here. The first is that it takes a very long time to run a Tobit model using the following cmp command syntax: . cmp (fem_inc = kids male_educ), ind("cond(fem_inc, $cmp_cont, $cmp_left)") qui So one thing I am wondering is if there is a better way to run a tobit model using cmp. The other option, I believe, is to calculate the inverse mills ratio for the selection equation and then manually insert the ratio into a Tobit model. But when I insert the inverse mills ratio into a regular OLS model to compare results to a regular Heckman model, I get very different results across the 2 models. However, the mills-inserted OLS results are very similar to the results I get when I run a Heckman model using the cmp commands (commands for the various models are listed below). So I am wondering if anyone knows why the cmp and manually inserted mills ratio results are similar to each other but different from the regular Heckman results. Am I using the wrong equations to calculate the inverse mills ratio? Is it due to differences in estimation procedures across the different modeling contexts? Some other reason?
