SEM One regressor depends on another regressor

I have the following structural model, by which one of the regressors is partially explained by another. $$ y_1= x_1+x_2+x_3+e \tag{1} $$ $$ x_1= x_2 + u \tag{2} $$ The questions are: a) Can ...

What is the difference between seemingly unrelated regression (SUR) and correcting a set of OLS results for multiple comparisons?

As I understand it, the the seemingly unrelated regressions (SUR) or seemingly unrelated regression equations (SURE) models estimate a set of Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) equations where the error ...

Are multivariate probit models with the same set of explanatory variables for each outcome more efficient that piecewise probit regressions?

I understand that multivariate probit models are analogous to SUR models. In the SUR case, there's no efficiency gain by fitting a SUR model over several independent OLS regressions when the model ...
