PLAUSEXOG: Stata module to implement Conley et al's plausibly exogenous bounds

Damian Clarke

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: plausexog implements Conley et al.'s (Rev.Ec.Stat., 2012) 'plausibly exogenous' bound estimation in Stata. This allows for statistical inference when a researcher believes that a potential instrumental variable (IV) may be 'close to', but not necessarily precisely, exogenous. This package implements a number of methods described by Conley et al., allowing for the relaxation of the traditional exclusion restriction in IV methods. This extends the original Conley et al. code to deal with graphing and a wide range of data scenarios in Stata.
