Hello all

In their paper "Flexible parametric estimation of duration and competing risk models" (J. of Applied Econometrics, vol. 5, 1990), Han and Hausman build a semiparametric duration model where the probability of failing in interval [t, t+1] takes an 'ordered' extreme-value form (and lead to the same results as the better known Meyer [90] paper).
However, they argue that the extreme-value distribution could be replaced by a normal distribution that "allows handling jointly endogeneous variables via instrumental variable techniques".

Is anyone on the list aware of a paper using this technique (i.e. replacing the extreme-value distribution by a normal one) ?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
