Thank you very much. I definitely donīt want to get standard errors that are too small, the problem is that I don't know how to it right. My model is like this: Y*= aZ + bC +bC^2 + e Y*>0, Y=1 Y*<0, Y=0 Z: exogenous regressors As I mentioned before C is correlated with e. I have instruments (W) but donīt know how to do a correct estimation. ivprobit doesn`t allow for a square term. I asked before in statalist if this would be right, but got no answer: ivprobit Y Z (C Csquared=W Chatsquared) Chatsquare: square of predicted values of regressio of C on Z and W. 2008/6/9 David Greenberg <dg4@nyu.edu>: > If you do the estimation m,anually by substituting the predicted value of a predictor into an equation for the second-stage estimation, the software will treat that predicted value as a true observed value, ignoring the fact that there is some uncertainty surrounding the prediction in the first stage. Consequently the second-stage estimation is going to produce estimates with standard errors that are too small. A question that one might ask is why you want to do this manually.
