Bootstrap will correct the standard error. Latent estimations (heckman, etc) are meant to predict unobserved values such as inverse-Mills ratio. It should not matter how E(y|x,z) is calcualted, as long as the conditions (i.e. exclusions, non-weak instruments) are met. > > These possibilities are starting to make my head hurt. :) To back > up, I've never heard of anyone computing the predicted values from > intreg and then using them as an independent variable in subsequent > analyses.
