```Dear Austin Nichols,
Thank you very much for your suggestion. I got some general idea to formulate the model even though I could not run the program
you forwarded me (it says: lwage is not a valid estimator). Back to my model -- more preciously, I found that my dependendent variables are partially related. The option "partial" after biprob, I think is suitable for partial observability. Will model formulated in the way you suggested
in previous e-mail also work in this case? I seek your suggestions regarding program formulation.Thank You.
Regards,
Rhythm
