AW: st: Standard error correction when using control function approach to endogeneity |

Dear Austin, thank you very much for your answer. As far as point (1) is concerned, I know that I could also use the 2SLS estimator by running ivregress or ivreg2. The reason for why I want to use the control function approach instead (where fitted residuals rather than fitted values are used in the second stage) is the following: I estimate a system of two simultaneous equations and need to test whether a combination of parameters from both equations is significantly different from zero (for further details see my earlier post to the statalist: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2013-06/msg00566.html). By using the control function approach I circumvent the problem that combining two IV-estimations with the -suest- command does not work because I only use the -reg- command. However, before combining the two estimations, I want to make sure that the standard errors of my coefficients are correct. Nevertheless, I am glad that bootstrapping the whole procedure would also do the standard error correction. However, I guess it might be more elegant to use the analytic standard error correction?
