st: 'treatreg' questions
I am using treatment effects model to assess the impact of IMF programs on
fiscal balance. I use the command "treatreg" in STATA, and when I use a
two-step estimator I get totally different results from a MLE estimator
(i.e. the coefficient for the IMF programs is significant at 1% level when
I use MLE, but is not significant in the two-step). Why do I get such
different results and what would be the implication, if any, of such
difference in light of endogeneity and selection bias?
Also , I do not get a Wald chi-sqaure value when I use MLE model. What
would be the problem?
I would be very grateful to receive your comments.
Thank you very much,
