Re: st: model identification problem
If you have a simulataneous equation system, you need to test identification with the order or rank condition. The order condition is necessary for identification, whereas the rank condition is necessary and sufficient for identification. According to Maddala, G.S., if you have g endogenous variables in the system and k = number of (endogenous and exogenous) variables missing from the equation, then for exact identification you need
k=g-1. If k < g-1, then your equation is not identified.
The rank condition procedure can be found in G.S. Maddala on pp.350-354. See references to order condition on p.347. That is, Maddala, G.S.(2001), Introduction to Econometrics, Third Ed., Wiley:NY, pp.347-354.
