I have several doubts about Hausman and Smith-Blundell test forexogeneity(probexog). I?m estimating a Probit model and I suspect that oneof theexplanatory variables is not exogenous. Then, don?t know how can Ido test forendogeneity:1. Is Hausman Test an appropriate test for endogeneity in probitregressions,how can I perform It to compare two probit specifications? I?ve seensomeexamples of Hausman test but always comparing probit vs othersestimationmethods (i.e. IVprobit) 2. I try to run Smith-Blundell test, but reading some threads(http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2006-04/msg00574.html) andstatacommands probexog , I can see that some instruments are requiredfor it, andI don?t have any variable for this purpose.3. I need at least to conclude that suspect variable is endogenous,and there isnot data at hand to estimate IVprobit, but can I do this if I can´tperformSmith-Blundell test?
