Thanks Martin.

<> You may want to add a little background to your question (why do you want todo this?), but my feeling is that(1) the change in the inequality sign in the selection equation merely changes the sign of the components of "g" (and the estimate of "rho") (2) the constant that you want on the RHS will be absorbed into the constant that -heckman- adds by default to the selection equation. Note that there is a separate -noconstant- option for it in the -heckman- command...

In Heckman, STATAestimates the parameters in the model:(regression equation: y is depvar, x is varlist) y = xb + u_1 (selection equation: Z is varlist_s) y observed if Zg + u_2 > 0 What if I want to change the rule for the selection equation to somethinglike:y observed if Zg + u_2 < Constant thanks for helping out. cheers max * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
