Dear Statalisters,

I am estimating a labor demand equation that is "incidentally truncated" in
the words of W. H. Green (2006), since demand for hired labor is only
observed for those who actually hire labor. However, I am more interested in
the effect of a treatment variable on labor demand and I suspect that the
same treatment variable also has an effect on the selection equation -
determining whether or not one uses hired labor.  Therefore I end up with the
usual Heckman selection model but with a potentially endogenous variable in
both the selection and the labor demand equation. Could there be an approach
that can allow me to handle the endogeneity problem in this scenario.

fear ... but strive to overcome fear!
