Dear Friends,

I am a researcher at Centre for Development Studies, Kerala, India. I
have a panel data on manufacturing firms for six years. I want to
estimate a tobit model using this data. I understand that consistent
estimation of random effect tobit model requires strict exogeneity of
the regressors, which is not valid in my data set; current value of
the depended variable affects future value of regressors. Another
option is to use pooled estimation that ignore firm's specific
effects. I would be highly grateful if you could give your advice on
the choice between these two estimates or some other better methods.
Looking forward to your response,
Thanking you,
M Parameswaran
