From Robin Sickles: As I indicated to you a few months in the past Professor William Horrace and that i would favor Springer to post a Festschrift in Honor of Peter Schmidt, our professor. Peter’s accomplishments are mythical between his scholars and the occupation. i've got a bit that pupil viewpoint in my introductory and shutting comments at the web site for the convention we had in his honor this final July. i've got hooked up the convention software from which chosen papers will come (as good as from scholars who have been not able to attend). additionally, you will locate the names of his scholars (40) at the site. A best twenty economics division might be begun up from these forty scholars. Papers from a few festschrifts have a thematic hyperlink one of the papers in line with material. What i feel is exclusive to this festschrift is that the subject matter operating in the course of the papers could be Peter’s amazing legacy left to his scholars to border an issue after which research and look at it extensive utilizing rigorous options yet hardly only for the aim of showcasing technical refinements in line with se. i feel this may be a e-book that graduate scholars might locate worthwhile of their early examine careers and professional students could locate important in either their and their scholars’ research.

Example text

The performance of endogeneity tests in the linear instrumental variables models is poor,9 with particularly misleading results in the case of the Hausman test. The performance of the bivariate probit model, Residual1 and Residual2 are not much better. In general, these results suggest that conventional endogeneity tests are more or less completely unreliable, at least in terms of conventional benchmark p-value thresholds when both dependent variables are binary. 5 Empirical Examples We present two empirical examples based on data sets from Bangladesh and Tanzania that have been previously analyzed by Chen and Guilkey (2003) and Guilkey and Hutchinson (2011).

M. 1780 Obs D 5,000 Obs D 10,000 combinations are typically found only with much lower probability. If Y1 were smoking and Y2 were obesity, for example, one could easily imagine a significant proportion of the population with combinations of strong unobserved tendencies toward and away from smoking and obesity that are hard to accommodate with unimodal (in terms of marginal errors or density surface in R3 ) errors, let alone joint normality. However, it also hard to believe that the performance of many models (such as those based on joint normality) would improve from what is presented in this manuscript once the departure from joint normality involved relaxing the assumption of unimodality.

The linear instrumental variables estimators’ performance increases significantly as instrument strength and sample size increases regardless of whether or not the true error distribution is normal or non-normal. That said, it is understandably difficult to grasp general patterns from the many cells of these tables. K. M. 0678 N D 5,000 N D 10,000 To perhaps provide a somewhat clearer overall picture, we consider a series of simple regression results. 21 provide results for these regression analyses.
