Fall 2008 under Econometrics Prof. Keunkwan Ryu 7 IV versus OLS estimation Standard error in IV case differs from OLS only in the R 2 from regressing x on z Since R 2 < 1, IV standard errors are larger However, IV is consistent, while OLS is inconsistent, when Cov( x,u ) ≠ 0 The stronger the correlation between z and x , the smaller the IV standard errors

Fall 2008 under Econometrics Prof. Keunkwan Ryu 10 Multiple Regression IV (cont) Write the structural model as y 1 = β 0 + 1 y 2 + 2 z 1 + u 1 , where y 2 is endogenous and z 1 is exogenous Let z 2 be the instrument, so Cov( z 2 ,u 1 ) = 0 and y 2 = π 0 + 1 z 1 + 2 z 2 + v 2 , where 2 ≠ 0 This reduced form equation regresses the endogenous variable on all exogenous ones

Fall 2008 under Econometrics Prof. Keunkwan Ryu 12 Two Stage Least Squares (2SLS) It’s possible to have multiple instruments Consider our original structural model, and let y 2 = π 0 + 1 z 1 + 2 z 2 + 3 z 3 + v 2 Here we’re assuming that both z 2 and z 3 are valid instruments – they do not appear in the structural model and are uncorrelated with the structural error term, u 1
