Part 13: Endogeneity Asymptotic Efficiency Asymptotic efficiency of the IV estimator. The variance is larger than that of LS. (A large sample type of Gauss-Markov result is at work.) (1) It’s a moot point. LS is inconsistent. (2) Mean squared error is uncertain: MSE[estimator| β ]=Variance + square of bias. IV may be better or worse. Depends on the data ™  24/61

Part 13: Endogeneity Two Stage Least Squares How to use an “excess” of instrumental variables (1) X is K variables. Some (at least one) of the K variables in X are correlated with ε . (2) Z is M > K variables. Some of the variables in Z are also in X , some are not. None of the variables in Z are correlated with ε. (3) Which K variables to use to compute Z’X and Z’y? ™  25/61

Part 13: Endogeneity Choosing the Instruments p Choose K randomly? p Choose the included Xs and the remainder randomly? p Use all of them? How? p A theorem: (Brundy and Jorgenson, ca. 1972) There is a most efficient way to construct the IV estimator from this subset: n (1) For each column (variable) in X , compute the predictions of that variable using all the columns of Z . n (2) Linearly regress y on these K predictions. p This is two stage least squares ™  26/61

Part 13: Endogeneity Algebraic Equivalence p Two stage least squares is equivalent to n (1) each variable in X that is also in Z is replaced by itself. n (2) Variables in X that are not in Z are replaced by predictions of that X with all the variables in Z that are not in X . ™  27/61

    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.
