Inference in limited dependent variable models robust to weak identification

We propose tests for structural parameters in limited dependent variable models with endogenous explanatory variables. These tests are based upon the generalized minimum distance principle. They are of the correct size regardless of whether the structural parameters are identified and are especially appropriate for models whose moment conditions are non-linear in the parameters. Moreover, they are computationally simple, allowing them to be implemented using a large number of statistical software packages. We compare our tests to Wald tests in a simulation experiment and use them to analyse the female labour supply and the demand for cigarettes. Copyright (C) 2010 The Author(s).
