Estimating Models with Sample Selection Bias: A Survey
This paper surveys the available methods for estimating models with sample selection bias. I initially examine the fully parameterized model proposed by Heckman (1979) before investigating departures in two directions. First, I consider the relaxation of distributional assumptions. In doing so I present the available semi-parametric procedures. Second, I investigate the ability to tackle different selection rules generating the selection bias. Finally, I discuss how the estimation procedures applied in the cross-sectional case can be extended to panel data.
