Re: st: Re:
It is worse than "not a good idea" to pick and choose among exog vars
to include in the first stage--it is not the IV estimator, and you
would have to derive consistency results for your new homemade
estimator based on different assumptions. You are better off sticking
with -ivreg- or -ivreg2- to be sure. If you want to include
d7usq=d7unit^2 as a new endogenous RHS variable, you now have two
endog variables, and you may need more excluded instruments--but the
products (with exog vars) and powers of your existing excluded
instrument(s) are candidates.
