We are interested in the true value of theta, theta0, of f(y|x,theta). In MLE, we define this value as the unique soluation to
maxE[f(y|x,theta)]. If iid sample is available, ML estimator is the solution to the sample analog of this problem.
However, an endogenous stratified sample is available instead of an iid sample.
