FIML estimation of an endogenous switching model for count data
We develop FIML code for estimating a Poisson Count data model with lognormal unobserved heterogeneity and an endogenous dummy variable as proposed by Terza (1998). Gauss-Hermite quadrature is used for calculating the log-likelihood and a -ml d0- method is employed. We present an example and discuss the problems found during the development of the code.
