Re: st: binary endogenous var
I have no experience with ivprob, but although designed for continuous
regressors maybe you can use it at least to test for exogeneity of a
binary regressor (see Wooldridge, 2002, sections 15.7.2f).
You can account for the endogeneity explicitly by estimating a bivariate
probit model using biprobit (see Wooldridge and Greene, 2003, ch. 21).
Fabbri et al. (2004) argue that this procedure also provides an
appropriate test of exogeneity.
Hope this helps.
