st: Inverse Hyperbolic Transformation with 3SLS |

Dear Stata users, I asked a related question before, but have a few additional questions about inverse hyperbolic sine transformation. I plan to estimate the following model by 3SLS (reg3). IHS(Revenue in each country) = a0 + a1*Time window + controls IHS(Time window) = b0 + b1*(expected) Revenue in each country + controls Time window is difference in launching time (in days) of a product between the US and international markets. Both revenue and time window are skewed, so I want to use some transformation. Because time window includes a lot of zeros and some negative values, I want to use inverse hyperbolic sine transformation. My questions are: 1. Will the model I described above work in the context of system of equations? Since most papers about IHS transformation are described in a single equation context, I am not sure about this. 2. Estimation of scaling parameter Burbidge, Magee, and Robb (1998) use a (concentrated) log-likelihood to estimate the scaling parameter. If I use this method separately for each equation and use the two estimated parameters to transform Revenue and Time window each, and then estimate 3SLS, will it work? I have read the following papers and related Q&A in Statalist archive, but these things are not clear to me. I would appreciate any comment. Burbidge, John B., Lonnie Magee, and A.
