Abstract

The indirect least squares (ILS) approach is broadly regarded as a procedure of deriving the structural parameters of a simultaneous equation system indirectly from the estimates of reduced-form parameters. In this paper it is shown that the ILS approach yields estimators which are identical with the two-stage least squares estimator, when applied to a single equation, and the three-stage least squares estimator, when applied to the complete system. Thus a fresh motivation for the ILS method is provided. /// Dans cet article, nous montrons que la méthode des moindres carrés indirects, quand appliquée à une seule équation résulte en des estimateurs identiques à ceux des moindres carrés à deux degrés, et quand appliquée au système complet, les estimateurs sont identiques à ceux des moindres carrés à trois degrés.
