st: Question about reg3/ivreg--endogeneity issue
I have estimated the model:
xi: reg3 (logint X logZ) (logZ i.type i.firm i.type2 i.busi), first
where my primary aim is to get consistent estimates of X and (the
endogenous) logZ on logint. My problem is that X is NOT endogenous, at
least not theoretically. But when I look at the second of the first-stage
regressions I see that the variable X (by default?) is used as an
explanatory variable of logZ as well.
If possible, how can I get the ceteris paribus effect of X on logint
(adjusted for logZ only) in the present context? By the way, the use of
ivreg instead of reg3 creates the same problem.
