# Antwort: Re: st: xtivreg2 with endogenous binary regressors

Hi,

in your case, using the fitted values of a nl first stage model, yes, you need to correct the se manually of the main stage.

Using ivreg2, your first stage is a linear model, as you rightly say. So the se in the main stage regression procedure are already corrected.

the question is rather whether we should estimate a linear model when the dependent is ordinal. I'd  say yes, as long as we are not interested in the 'true' effects of Z.

Thema: Re: st: xtivreg2 with endogenous binary regressors

Hi,

I am having a similar issue. However I'm using the fitted values from
a first step nl regression and using them as instrument for the
endogenous in the second step (see textbook Cameron & Trivedi, 2005
pp. 193). The problem is the correction of se in the second step.
Either you cumpute the V correction manually (not sure if there is an
appropriate package?) or use bootstrap.

My question:
Could this also apply to the case of an ordinal endogenous variable,
since what is used is a linear projection?

Many thanks,

Filipe
