Hi,


I am analyzing a model where my dependent variable is a count
variable, specifically the number of riot cases in a district. Since
the variance of the dependent variable is quite high compared to the
mean I plan to use the negative binomial distribution. However my
independent variable is endogenous and I would like to use a
instrument variable analysis. Unfortunately I have been unsuccessful
in finding any program which implements IV in a negative binomial
context. Could somebody please advice me how to implement IV
estimation in a negative binomial framework? I would really appreciate
any help in this regard.

Thanks,
Arka
