Endogeneity bias and two-stage least squares: a simulation study
"In disciplines such as economics, social science, and epidemiology, estimating regression models using ordinary least squares can lead to biased estimates due to one or more of the independent variables being correlated with the error term. When such correlation is not ruled out, the covariate under suspicion is called endogeneous, and the ordinary least squares estimate of the covariate effect is typically biased and yields inconsistent estimates of the causal parameter...This thesis is a simulation study of the bias due to endogeneity, and how much of this bias is removed is determined by resorting to the 2SLS technique. The simulation study was carried out to investigate the bias under several different model assumptions, and the results are compared"--Abstract, page iii.
