Estimating binary choice models with endogeneity is of considerable importance in microeconometrics. The leading control function approach does not apply when the endogenous variable is binary. We propose a multi-stage estimation procedure for a heteroscedastic binary choice model with an endogenous dummy under a joint conditional symmetry restriction, which allows us to overcome several drawbacks associated with the existing estimators.
