It looks like you have an identification problem. You have 2 endogenous variables (faa and fab), each with its own equation, and 8 exogenous variables. Both the faa and the fab equation have 9 regressors, one endogenous and 8 exogenous. Your structural model has 2x9=18 structural coefficients. If you write the model in reduced form with just exogenous variables on the RHS, you have 2 RF equations x 8 exogenous regressors = 16 RF coefficients. 18 > 16, so the model is underidentified. Each equation taken individually is also underidentified, because you don't have any exogenous variables that are excluded from either of the equations. What you need are some exclusion restrictions that identify the model. For example, if fak were a regressor in the fab eqn but not the faa equation, you could use it as an excluded instrument for fab; the faa equation would be identified and estimable [estimatable?] using single- equation IV. To estimate the system using 3SLS, you would also need at least one exclusion restriction that identifies the fab equation as well. --Mark > The instruments at my disposal > are theoretically not very good. > > Thus using the 3SLS estimation procedure does not appear to be a > very good option.
