Hi.

I'm going to estimate a IVPROBIT to calculate the impact of women's empowerment on child nutrition. I am using KR and PR database for Colombia 2010. The dependents variables are HW70, HW71 and hw72. First I made unique strata values by region/urban-rural and I think that I classified the nutritional status in children but now I need to generate the IV. I have thinking use the differences in year of education between women's parents. Would you like to help me to create it? I don't know what variable exactly to use because there are a lot of highest year education and I can't identify which one is related to women's parents.
Other points that are also confusing for me are:
- Do I need to use strata variable into the regression? How can I do it?
- Which variable you recommend me to use for the classifcation of the household in married or living together. ? hv115 or v501 variable?
