Re: st: biprobit: set correlation of residuals to zero |

Dear Maarten, I tried the example below and the biprobit and probit are the same but the marginal effects are not when I just use -mfx, compute- after biprobit and after probit. which mfx is appropriate to get the same marginal effects from biprobit and probit? Do you think the same holds for the Seemingly Unrelated Biprobit? (correlation zero, and calculate two separate probit?) to see mainly the effect of private on vote for example? biprobit (private = loginc logeduc years) (vote = private loginc logeduc years), constraint(1) Many thanks.
