Description

Computation of the asymptotic variance matrix of the robust Heckman's two-stage estimator for the second regime of switching regression model, i.e. when y_1=0.

heck5twosteprobVcov(y1vec, y2vec, x1Matr, x2Matr, eststage1, eststage2, 
                    eststage2sigma, weights = rep(1,nrow(y1vec)), t.c = 1.345)

Arguments

y1vec

vector of endogenous variables of the selection stage

y2vec

vector of endogenous variables of the outcome stage

x1Matr

matrix of exogenous variables of the selection stage

x2Matr

matrix of exogenous variables of the outcome stage

eststage1

object of class "glmrob", corresponding to the robust probit fit

eststage2

vector of the coefficients of the outcome stage

eststage2sigma

the robust scale estimate of the second stage regression

weights

vector of robustness weights

t.c

tuning constant of the second stage

Details

The computation is made using the Huber (1967) - White (1980) sandwich estimator with Heckman (1979) correction. In the computation of leverage weights the λ's are assumed to be fixed.

Value

Variance covariance matrix of the second stage estimator
