This does not seem like a very sensible thing to me: if you have 5 time points, 100 regions, and 8 explanatory variables, then you would need to create 800 interactions, which is far more than 500 obserations that you have.

The inference based on instrumental variables estimators is only valid asymptotically, since the only nice statistical property that IV estimators have is consistency. Hence the z- rather than t-statistic. You can play around with your degrees of freedom to inflate it somewhat, and get more accurate estimates. I think this issue has been arising from time to time at Statalist, and it is mentioned briefly in xtivreg FAQ you mentioned below. > 3) These significance levels of the coefficients come > out very very small (almost die out) in xtivreg, fe > case.

I think this is a version question: the FAQ was written in 2001, when Stata 6 only started shipping. -- Stas Kolenikov http://stas.kolenikov.name * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
