instrumental variables involves a matrix of regressors X and a matrix of instruments Z. All variables considered exogenous (or predetermined) are in Z. Some may also be in X. In your caseI need to estimate an instrumental variables regression. I have got two repressors, but I need the instrument only for one. How can I do it using the Stata? When I use ivreg command, for example, ivreg demand oil (demand_1=demand_2 oil_1) I need the instrument only for demand_1, not for oil. But the Stata interprets oil as an instrument for demand_1 too.

X = (oil demand_1 _cons)

Z = (oil demand_2 oil_1 _cons)

There is no one-to-one correspondence between regressors and instruments. All elements of Z are being used to generate the 'X-hat' matrix; that is, each column of X is regressed on the elements of Z. This is not a whim of Stata's design; it is inherent in the notion of an IV estimator.
