A friend of mine is having problems posting to statalist. I am sending this on her behalf. Eva ************************************* From: Bidisha Sayema [lexshb@nottingham.ac.uk] Dear Statalisters I posted a mail few weeks before but havent got any reply. In connection to that problem (pls see below) I am writing once again as I am using bootstrap as a method of solution. I am using 2 sample 2 stage least square method (Angrist & Krueger 1990). I would like to draw a bootstrap sample of my 1st sample (where explanatory variable X and instruments Zs are present) and from that I estimate the parametres needed to estimate the predicted value of X. Then I want to draw the 2nd sample (which has our dependent variable Y and instruments Z) and use that sample (and combine the parametres from the 1st estimation) to generate a predicted value of X. With this 2nd sample I want to run the regression of Y on predicted value of X and estimate the coefficients. I want to repeat all these steps 1000 times and want to estimate the SEs of the coefficients of our final regression by the standard deviation of the bootstrap estimates. My question is (very basic though) if I just run 2 separate bootstrap regression of 1000 reps in both of the stages, will that give me the result that I want to have (as outlined in last para)? My question is if I do separate bootstrap regressions then will STATA be able to correct the bias in SE generated by using predicted value in the 2nd stage regression? Many thanks in advance.

Both stages involve OLS but in the 2nd stage as I am using predicted value as a regresor I need to correct the SEs. I am wondering whether bootstrapping the SEs would suffice the purpose and would produce correct SEs. Any suggestion is appreciated.

Therefore in my 1st sample I have the explanatory variable X and instruments Zs and in 2nd sample I don't have X but I have the dependent variable Y and same instrument set Z. In my 1st stage I estimate model of X while regressing X on Zs. In the 2nd stage I use the coefficients of Zs obtained from the 1st stage regression with the values of Zs available in the 2nd sample to get a predicted value of Xhat. This Xhat is used as a regressor in my final regression of Y. However as I am using predicted value of Xhat in my final regression, I need to correct the standard errors manually. It would be greatly appreciated if someone inform me how to do it in STATA.
