Part 13: Endogeneity The weird results for the coefficient on ED happened because the instruments, MS,FEM,BLK are all dummy variables. There is not enough variation in these variables. ™  10/61

Part 13: Endogeneity Instrumental Variables p Framework: y = X + , K variables in X . p There exists a set of K variables, Z such that plim( Z’X/n )  0 but plim( Z’ /n) = 0 The variables in Z are called instrumental variables. p An alternative (to least squares) estimator of is b IV = ( Z’X )-1 Z’y p We consider the following: n Why use this estimator? n What are its properties compared to least squares? p We will also examine an important application ™  17/61

Part 13: Endogeneity The General Result By construction, the IV estimator is consistent. So, we have an estimator that is consistent when least squares is not. ™  19/61

Part 13: Endogeneity LS as an IV Estimator The least squares estimator is ( X X )-1 Xy = ( X X )-1i x iyi = + ( X X )-1i x iεi If plim( X’X /n) = Q nonzero plim( X’ε /n) = 0 Under the usual assumptions LS is an IV estimator X is its own instrument. ™  20/61

Part 13: Endogeneity IV Estimation Why use an IV estimator ? Suppose that X and are not uncorrelated. Then least squares is neither unbiased nor consistent. Recall the proof of consistency of least squares: b = + ( X’X /n)-1( X’ /n). Plim b = requires plim( X’ /n) = 0. If this does not hold, the estimator is inconsistent. ™  21/61

Part 13: Endogeneity A Popular Misconception A popular misconception. If only one variable in X is correlated with , the other coefficients are consistently estimated. False.
