<> The manual [R], p. 668, does state that it is possible to have the same set of variables in both equations, but that in this case "...the model is identified only by functional form, and the coefficients have no structural interpretation." Also note the very similar problem in [R], p. 649, for the -heckman- command: "(Theoretically, we do not need such identifying variables, but without them, we depend on functional form to identify the model. It would be difficult for anyone to take such results seriously because the functional-form assumptions have no firm basis in theory.)"

November 2009 00:26 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: heckprob Hi statalisters I am estimating a model with sample selection and the helpfile for heckprob says that the selection equation should contain at least one variable that is not in the outcome equation. However, when I include the same variables in both the outcome and selection equation, i get significant results. Is my model not consistent by including the same variables? Your help is appreciated.
