Dear Joao, Thanks for your patient explanation. I thought I understood what you mean. But when I followed the rule and made sure that the dependent variable has non-missing values for only one category, the same error still showed up. What I understand the correct data structure about missing values of depvar is like this: depvar varlist, select ( depvar_m = varlist_m).... 500 x 1 z 456 x 1 z 529 x 1 z 601 x 1 z miss x 2 z 547 x 2 z 408 x 2 z 620 x 3 z 599 x 3 z 512 x 3 z miss x 3 z miss x 3 z So the depvar has non-missing values for category 1 only. It has missing values for all the other categories (2 and 3). Would you please kindly correct me if I am wrong? I appologize to ask another question. If the command works, how could save the variable lambda (Heckman correction term)? I appreciate your help a lot! Yu On Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 11:08 AM, Joao Ricardo F.
