The inverse Mills ratio is the ratio of the probability density function and the cumulative density function of the normal distribution evaluated at the … Inverse Mills Ratio for the second step by OLS? If so, are there any pitfalls regarding it? Long version: A two-step selection model is used, e.g., in the case that due to a selection process a …

equals $\rho\cdot\sigma_{1}\cdot\lambda\left(c\cdot x\right)$ with $\lambda\left(\cdot \right)=\dfrac{\phi\left({\cdot}\right)}{\Phi\left({\cdot}\right)}$ the ratio of the standard normal PDF and CDF (the so-called "inverse Mills ratio"). I haven't been able to do much work. Help would be appreciated. …

truncation at $Z=t$ (or $X=T$) changes almost nothing. As $t$ grows very negative, the inverse Mills ratio must approach $-t$ because the tails of the normal distribution decrease so rapidly that … $-\infty$, we obtain $$\mathbb{E}(X\,|\, X \le T) = \mu - \sigma \frac{\phi\left(t\right)}{\Phi\left(t\right)}.$$ It's the original mean minus a correction term proportional to the Inverse Mills Ratio

On the other side, the Heckman procedure relies on the assumption … of joint normality of the errors, while the IV does not make any such assumption.
