Re: st: Using ivregress when the endogenous variable is used in an interaction term in the main regression |

My model doesn't have X2 as a separate term, so in terms of the model you had it looks like: Y = b*X1*X2 + controls So the only place the endogenous variable comes up is the interaction term At the risk of being repetitive, would these be the correct steps (so essentially only step 3 changes from what you said): 1) regress X2 on all instruments, exogenous variables and controls 2) Form interactions of X2hat with the exogenous variable X1, that is, X2hat*X1 3) ivregress instrumenting for X2*X1 using X2hat*X1.
