You have more to worry about than correcting SEs--that does not sound
like a consistent estimator; see e.g. pp 12-13 of

model is linear in y2"

Dear stata members

I have a multinomial logit regression in which one of the covariates is

More specifically, the model is:

1) y1 = a0+a1*y2+a2*x1+a3*x2 (where y1 obtain the values

2) y2 = b0+b1*x1+b2*x2+b3*z1 (z1 is an excluded instrument for y2)

To run this model, i first estimate equation 2 and obtain expected y2 and
then plug it in equation 1 (which is a multinomial logit regression). In
this case, i know that the standard error of the estimated a1 coefficient is
not correct. I also know that i must bootstrap the two stages together but I
do not know how to do it.

I will be thankful to anybody that can guide me in this issue.
