Dear all

I'm using the biprobit command to evaluate the impact of a income
transference program on a food insurance indicator. I have to equations:

svy linearized : biprobit fomegra benef
/// 
idade anosest d_sexo d_cor
///
d_sabeler d_matpar d_matcob numpescom d_agua d_banheiro numban d_lixo
///
rendapc  _Iregiao_2 _Iregiao_3 _Iregiao_4 _Iregiao_5                 
 
The dependent variables in the two equations are  fomegra (the food
insurance indicator, a dummy variable) and benef (a dummy variable that
indicates the program participation). My intention is eliminate the bias due
to the fact that impact variable (benef) is endogenous because I think that
benef and fomegra are simultaneously determined.    

STATA returns the following message:

(running biprobit on estimation sample)
initial values not feasible
an error occurred when svy executed biprobit
r(1400);
  

How can I solve this?
Thanks in advance

Henrique Neder
