[Limdep Nlogit List] Simultaneous equations with one ordered probit

Marc. You cannot use 3sls with an ordered probit model. The dependent
variable is just a label for an outcome, not a quantitative measure.
Also, chances are, you are using the textbook benchmarks for indentification
of your model, which are also wrong because you have a discrete dependent
There is a recent paper in JAE by Rice, Contoyannis and Jones that deals
with an endogenous ordered outcome variable that you might find useful.

Subject: [Limdep Nlogit List] Simultaneous equations with one ordered probit

Dear all


I would appreciate your help with the following. I would like to estimate a
system of three equations using 3SLS. Two of the equations are linear
regressions. The third regression is an ordered probit/logit. Is this
something that can be done with Limdep?


Best wishes,
