(a) I have two dependent variables (both dummy variables): one has two categories ( 0 and 1) and the second dependent variable has three categories (0, 1, and 2). Is it possible to estimate the joint relationship betwees these two dependent variables using the biprobit command?

How is it a dummy variable if it has 3 categories?

I believe categories 1 and 2 are both being treated as though they are 1. If that is what you want, then fine, but otherwise I don't think biprobit will act the way you want it to.
