This article considers a two-equation simultaneous equation model in which one of the dependent variables is completely observed and the other is observed only to the extent of whether or not it is positive. A class of generalized least squares estimators are proposed and their asymptotic variance-covariance matrices are obtained. The estimators are based on the principle which is applicable whenever the structural parameters need to be determined from the estimates of the reduced form parameters.
