Thank you very much for your quick answer.Can I however use the equation 3 (below) as an estimation thatincorporates the lambda?Sebastian --- On Thu, 9/24/09, Christopher Baum <baum@bc.edu> wrote: From: Christopher Baum <baum@bc.edu> Subject: Re: Stata Heckman and Mills ratio To: "seb nieto" <nietoseb@yahoo.com> Cc: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Date: Thursday, September 24, 2009, 1:10 PM Seb,you can always create an r^2 measure from the squared correlation ofactual and predicted observations used in the estimation.
