Re: st: RE: first stage prediction gets negative value for positive observations
thank you Nick. even though i plot the data and the fitted data, the
problem is still there. let me give some examples:
1. X1>0, however, the fitted value of X1 from first stage has negative
2. 0<X1<1, however, the fitted value of X1 from first stage has
observation bigger than 1.
you name it.
I guess it doesn't matter, but it does look questionable in terms of
how to explaine the meaning of X1.
