Thanks - this is exactly what I was looking for! nicola.baldini2@unibo.it wrote:

I do not know if I understand your question well. I think that I had a

similar problem: estimating the effect of a social policy (a government

program to combat poverty) on an indicator of food security. Participation

in the program is defined as a dummy variable (P) and Y is the indicator of

food security which is also a dummy. The first equation is a logit model:

Ln (p / (1-p)) = beta0 + beta1 * P + beta2 * X1 + ... + betap * Xp + u (1)

Where p is the probability of being in a situation of food security.

P is a dummy of selection in the program

Clearly here P is endogenous because participation in the program is

determined by the situation of food security of the household. Then I used a

second equation:

Ln (q / (1-q)) = gamma0 + gamma1 * M1 + ... + gammap * Mp + v (2)

Where q is the selection probability in the program and M1 ,..., Mp are

explanatory factors for this participation. This equation is the first stage

of an estimation by instrumental variables in two stages. I replaced the

estimate of q obtained through the logit model (2) in place of P variable in

the logit model (1).

I wonder if this helps you and also on the part of any list member if there

is any flaw in this econometric method.

Assunto: st: treatreg model with binary outcomes

Hi all!

I want to run a treatment effects model. I have binary outcome variables for both parts of a two-stage model. Essentially, I have this:

W=Y+x1...xi+e where Y=Z+x1...x1+e

My outcome of interest is W (binary) and it is predicted by Y (binary) and control variables x1...xi. Y is predicted by an instrumental variable Z (continuous, unrelated to W) and the the same set of control variables x1...xi (predictive of both W and Y).

It is my understanding that the treatreg command is appropriate only for a continuous outcome variable. I have tried looking at the biprobit command but I have not been able to figure out if that is the appropriate model to use. If so, which model gets the x1---xi variables?
