Endogeneity bias modeling using observables

Galvao Jr, A. F., Montes-Rojas, G. & Song, S. (2017). Endogeneity bias modeling using observables. Economics Letters, 152, pp. 41-45. doi: 10.1016/j.econlet.2016.12.021


This paper proposes an alternative solution to the endogeneity problem by explicitly modeling the joint interaction of the endogenous variables and the unobserved causes of the dependent variable as a function of additional observables. We derive identification of the parameters, develop an estimator, and establish its consistency and asymptotic normality.
