If selection is not controlled for, the only prediction of wages that can be made is that conditional on labor force participation. 6. The bivariate probit model with selection gives rise to the following likelihood function: ln L ‫ס‬ 7. ͸ 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. ln ⌽2͓␥Ј1X1i,␥Ј2X2i, ␳͔ ‫ם‬ Ј Ј LFP‫ס‬1,EMP‫ס‬0 ln ⌽2͓␥1X1i, ‫␥ מ‬2X2i, ␳͔ ‫ם‬ ͸ LFP‫ס‬1, EMP‫ס‬1 ͸ LFP‫ס‬0 ln ⌽͓‫␥מ‬Ј1X1i͒, where ⌽2 is the bivariate normal cumulative distribution function and ⌽ is the univariate normal cumulative distribution function.

Also see Averett, et al. (1999) for further evidence on this point. One can easily show that, for C Ͼ 0 for lfprd ‫ ס‬C/(C ‫ ם‬D), ‫ץ‬lfprd/‫ץ‬D Ͻ 0 and ‫ץ‬lfprd/‫ץ‬C Ͼ 0. Acemoglu and Angrist (2001) dismiss this theory by showing that controlling for receipt of disability benefits only marginally impacts their results. They fail to point out, however, that the receipt of benefits will reflect only a fraction of the desire to receive benefits (see Kubik 1999). Consequently, the actual impact of increasing program generosity on the disability status change for nonparticipants could be much larger than that measured by growing recipiency.

By controlling for selection into the labor market (since we can only estimate the wage equation on those for whom we observe wages), we are able to make unconditional predictions that correspond to the population. If selection is not controlled for, the only prediction of wages that can be made is that conditional on labor force participation. 6. The bivariate probit model with selection gives rise to the following likelihood function: ln L ‫ס‬ 7. ͸ 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. ln ⌽2͓␥Ј1X1i,␥Ј2X2i, ␳͔ ‫ם‬ Ј Ј LFP‫ס‬1,EMP‫ס‬0 ln ⌽2͓␥1X1i, ‫␥ מ‬2X2i, ␳͔ ‫ם‬ ͸ LFP‫ס‬1, EMP‫ס‬1 ͸ LFP‫ס‬0 ln ⌽͓‫␥מ‬Ј1X1i͒, where ⌽2 is the bivariate normal cumulative distribution function and ⌽ is the univariate normal cumulative distribution function.
