Just noticed that the discussion paper in Austin's first link below was published in a journal last year: Wilde J. A note on GMM estimation of probit models with endogenous regressors. Statistical Papers 2008;49:471-484.<http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s00362-006-0027-2> On Mon, Feb 9, 2009 at 3:01 PM, Austin Nichols <austinnichols@gmail.com> wrote: > This is probably a less straightforward problem than it first appears--see e.g. > http://www.iwh-halle.de/d/publik/disc/4-05.pdf > http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0165-1765(01)00623-1 > > On Sun, Feb 8, 2009 at 12:51 PM, Stas Kolenikov <skolenik@gmail.com> wrote: >> Murphy-Topel approach is one common way to adjust the standard errors, >> see http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=st0018.
