Nonparametric Two-Stage Estimation of Simultaneous Equations with Limited Endogenous Regressors
Estimation of simultaneous equations with limited (or transformed) endogenous regressors has been difficult in the parametric literature for various reasons. In this paper, we propose a nonparametric two-stage method that is analogous to two-stage least-squares estimation. A simultaneous censored model is used to illustrate our approach, and then its generalization to other cases is developed. The technical highlight is in handling a nondifferentiable second-stage minimand with an infinite-dimensional first-stage nuisance parameter when the first-stage error is not orthogonal to the second.
