Hello.

I need to estimate the effect of a program on the likelihood to grow a certain kind of crop. As participation in the program is endogenous, I would like to use instrumental variables

ivprobit crop (program=z) x

where x are other household characteristics, and z are instruments.

As I have two points in time, I would like to consider some kind of household effect. I realize I can't use fixed effect, so I could use 
xtprobit, pa
However, if I understand correctly, this does not allow instrumenting.

Question 1: Does anybody know a way out of this problem?


Question 2:
What if estimated

ivprobit crop2 (delta_program=z) crop1 x1 

where variables with suffix 2 refer to the second period, and those with 1 to the first period (initial characteristics) and delta_program=program2-program1

I suspect the estimation would be biased, because of the inclusion of the lagged dependent variable... Can anybody confirm?


Thank you very  much in advance
Marco
