Gender cannot be an endogeneous variable in any regression (except
probably in artificial insemination), so you must be studying
attitudes toward sex, right? As Maarten indicated, there are better
models that account for the binary character of your variable.
Econometricians have their ways of dealing with endogenous variables,
too, including the binary ones, through instrumental variables, so you
would want to check if you can find somebody nearby with that sort of
expertise.

Hello, everyone,

I have a a dichotomous variable as endogenous variable in the path
analysis, sex(0/1), I wrote the following syntax, is it right? Could
you please provide me some advances?

pathreg (knowledge exogenous_vars) /*
*/ (attitude knowledge exegenous_vars) /*
*/ (sex attitude knowledge exogenous_vars)


Many thanks in advance!


Bests,
