TSLS

An infection in which the initial site is skin or soft tissue. This may occur in adults or children and it is readily transmitted from person to person. Typically there is a history of a minor, usually nonpenetrating, local trauma that within the next 1 to 3 days develops into the usual toxic shock syndrome (TSS) caused by a toxin elaborated by certain strains of Staphylococcus aureus.

In particular, whereas the marginal effect of private insurance coverage before pregnancy changes dramatically moving from the single equation logistic to the two-equation logistic model with the Terza adjustment, it changes little moving from the single equation OLS model to the two-equation TSLS model, which also adjusts for simultaneity bias.
The TSLS regression analysis (Series 1) is an appropriate estimation procedure in situations where there is a simultaneous relationship between the dependent variable and one or more of the independent variables in a regression model (Gujarati, 1995).
