st: 2SLS estimation with possible scaling |

Dear Statalisters I have estimated 2SLS regressions. The data is cross-section and the endogenous explanatory variable is binary, I have used . probit x x1 x2 x3 z where x = endogen. binary rhs variable I then took the predicted values and ran an -ivreg- with the predicted values. I find that the coefficient of the endogenous variable is 1.05 and is significant. I guess I could scale the endogenous variable without scaling anything as yet. I did this and I find the coefficient of the endogenous variable is now 0.105 and has the same significance, that is, it is significant. But I am not certain, if would be correct. I would be grateful, if anyone would let me know if just scaling the endogenous variable is sufficient. I am not certain if I should scale the dependent variable of the ivreg and also the instrument I used in the first stage regression and the predicted values if this is possible.
