st: Multivariate selection equation

Dear all,

I would like to estimate a Heckman-type of model with a multivariate
selection equation.

The regression equation is a standard wage equation:

w(i) = x(i)B + u(i)

Workers have 3 alternatives, namely working (0), going into disability (1),
and going into retirement (2), and their wage is only observed when they
self-select into option 0.

I would really appreciate it if anybody could let me know whether it is
possible to estimate such a model in Stata, and/or give me a reference where
this has been done before.

Thank you all,

Maria Casanova
