Kryukov 73-261 2.3 Endogeneity Omitted variable – setup True model: y = β 0 + β 1 x 1 + β 2 x 2 + u (∗) x 1 and x 2 are correlated: x 2 = δ 0 + δ 1 x 1 + e Let v = β 2 x 2 + u , then (∗) becomes y = . . . . . . . . . (∗∗) We do not observe x 2 So we estimate (∗∗) ; note that cov( x 1 , v ) 0 The estimate of β 1 is 1 ~ β e & u are independent of x

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
