-dirifit- handles zeros and ones in the same way as -betafit-, whether
that is well or not well depends on your problem.

That depends on what you think the sample selection problem is in your
case. In general I would not think of -zoib- as a solution for a
sample selection problem, as that typically implies a correlation
between the errors of the selection equation and the main equation and
no such correlation is implied or estimated in -zoib-.

Hope this helps,
