If you are concerned about heterosckedasticity you can use the -ro- option within the full maximum likelihood estimates. However if you are interested in the -two-step- option the you can try performing the two-steps your self by generating the inverse mills ratio:

heckman depvar indvar, select(select) two m(mymills)

This will generate the non-selection hazard -mymills-, use this as a regressor in -reg-

reg depvar indvar mymills

You will be able to use all diagnostics after the second step equation.

I hope this helps,

Dear Statalist,

Our research has applied the Heckman self-selection model with the twostep option. We have a crucial requirement to check our model specifications. However, with the current build-in commends in STATA such as hettest, whitetst, rvfplot, ovtest, linktst etc, we are unable to approaching the regular checking on homoscedasticity, normality of residuals, non-linearity and model specifications.
We are appreciated if you could provide any suggestions on STATA commends can help us to cover this requirement as a necessary for our research. Or possibly, are there any ad hoc model specifications requires to be checked in relation to the robustness of our heckman estimation?

Best Regards,
