A note on the estimation of mixture models under endogenous sampling

Econometrics Journal, 2003, vol. 6, issue 1, 46-52

Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to highlight that, in the estimation of mixture models under endogenous sampling, the distribution of the unobservables can be specified either in the actual population or in the artificial population induced by the sampling method. Which of the two approaches is correct depends crucially on the population of interest. The importance of making the correct decision is illustrated with a simple application.
