I am able to reproduce this inconsistency between what the help-file says and what -heckman- does. I would stick with what the help file says until StataCorp says it is OK to use weights in combination witht he -twostep- option. My guess is that the weights are just ignored in that case. The reason for this belief is that in the example below I specified -pweights-, which automatically implies that the resulting standard errors should be robust standard errors, but this is not the case. *-------------- begin example -------------- webuse womenwk gen w = runiform() heckman wage educ age [pw=w], twostep /// select(married children educ age) *------------- end example ----------------- -- Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
