st: Heckman unconditional marginal effects decomposition for dummy variables |

Dear Statalisters, Suppose I run: heckman a b c d, select(b c d e f) where "b" & "c" are continuous variable, whereas "d" is a dummy ("e" & "f" are selection instruments not relevant for my question) Suppose I want to apply the decomposition for unconditional marginal effects for dummies: E1(y)-E0(y)=P1(y>0)[E1(y|y>0)-E0(y|y>0)]+E0(y|y>0)[P1(y>0)-P0(y>0)] following Stata Technical Bulletin, July 2000, for the Tobit model. Let us say I want to find E1(y|y>0) & P0(y>0) for the dummy "d" at first Would I do right if I ran: heckman a b c d, select(b c d e f) mfx compute if d==1, predict(ycond) mfx compute if d==0, predict(psel) ? If not, what stata command should I use to find E1(y|y>0) & P0(y>0)? Many thanks in advance!
