The Two-Sample Two-Stage Least Squares (TS2SLS) estimator was introduced by Klevmarken () and applies in cases where one wants to estimate the effects of possibly endogenous explanatory variables x on outcome y, but where y and x are not observed in the same data by: 7.

The instrumental variable approach for controlling unobserved sources of variability is the mirror opposite of the propensity score method for controlling observed variables (Angrist et al. , Winship and Morgan ).Unlike an observed control variable, an instrumental variable is assumed not to have any direct effect on the outcome. Instead, the instrumental variable is .

Instrumental Variables (IV) estimates tend to be biased in the same direction as Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) in finite samples if the instruments are weak. To address this problem we propose a new IV estimator which we call Split Sample Instrumental Variables (SSIV).

SSIV uses one-half of a sample to estimate parameters of the first-stage equation. Estimated first-stage parameters are then used to construct fitted values and second-stage parameter estimates in the other half by: • First we propose a split-sample score test for the null hypothesis H0: β = β0 which is valid when the instruments are strong for γ.

Let bγ(β0) be the Unbiased-Split-Sample-Instrumental-Variables (USSIV) estimator of γ constrained by the null hypothesis H0: β = β0 [see Angrist and Krueger ()]. We define a test which rejects the null hy. In this paper we design two split-sample score tests for subsets of structural coefficients in a linear Instrumental Variables (IV) regression.

We introduce this new method in the context of split-sample-based inference on structural co-efficients in a linear Instrumental Variables (IV) regression. In particular, we restrict the focus of this paper to projection-type inference based on the “split-sample statistic” for structural coefficients corresponding to the endogenous regressors.

In general, instrumental variables are most suitable for studies in which there are only moderate to small confounding effects. They are least useful when there are strong confounding effects. Instrumental Variables: A Brief Annotated Bibliography.

For some reason, most of the existing explanations are overly complicated and focus on specific nuanced aspects of generating IV estimates without really providing the intuition for why it makes sense. In this post, you will not find too many technical details, but rather a narrative introducing.
