My code and My interpretation are right? Mostly yes. I think you should update your version of -ivreg2-, because the latest version will display the J statistics for both the constrained (smom exogenous) and unconstrained (smom endogenous) specifications. You'll probably find that both have J statistics that suggest that the orthogonality conditions aren't met (one will be 27.609 and the other will be about 7). This implies that the C-statistic doesn't mean much, because you are comparing two misspecified equations. But see below. > But I just tried to test overidentification as the following > equation > ivreg2 fmom y87 y88 y89 y90 y91 y92 y93 y94 y95 y96 y97 y98 y99 y00 > y01 y02 s87 s88 s89 s90 s91 s92 s93 s94 s95 s96 s97 s98 s99 s00 s01 > s02 (smom=dgovern dratio), gmm; > ----------test result------------ > Hansen J statistic (overidentification test of all instruments): > > 3.633 > Chi-sq(1) P-val = 0.05665 > ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ > Instrumented: smom > Instruments: y87 y88 y89 y90 y91 y92 y93 y94 y95 y96 y97 y98 y99 y00 > y01 y02 s87 s88 s89 s90 s91 s92 s93 s94 s95 s96 s97 s98 s99 s00 s01 > s02 dgovern dratio > ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ > > the result indicates that instruments are orthogonal under 5% > significance level > > Q2 : why two results are different? Did i miss something? This one is equivalent to the unconstrained version mentioned above (smom endogenous). The difference is, I think, because the first version uses an estimate of the covariance matrix of orthogonality conditions that guarantees a positive C statistic, which is different from the one used here. In my experience, the difference is usually small, but yours is a bit larger than usual. That said, the conclusions don't differ that much - a p-value of 6% is basically just as much a concern as a p-value of 5%! Hope this helps.
