Re: st: how to obtain Murphy and Topel asymptotic variance and covariance matrix in stata
Mark and other statalisters,
it looks like your suggested James Hardin article deals with the standwich
estimates of variance, which is asymptotically equivalent to Murphy-Topel.
Isn't there any way I could obtain exactly the Murphy-Topel correction?
