Testing for endogenity of a regressor
We have the following outcome equation:
were X is assumed to be exogenous variables and C is an indicator variable for a multinomial treatment (each individual is exposed to one out of five possible treatments).
Treatment selection is governed by the following linear index function:
were Z represents another set of set of exogenous variables.
The idea is to control for possible selection bias (i.e. E(e|C,X) # 0) in the estimation of the treatment effect using a "selection on observables" approach, where Z is added to equation (1) and this equation is estimated as a linear control function model.
Before proceeding with this, we would like to test whether C in equation (1) is actually endogenous.
Anyone who knows how to perform a endogeneity test in Stata in this case? Perhaps something analogous to the Durbin- Whu- Hausman test?
