st: the Sargan test
In reference to GMM methods in STATA8 (Arellano and Bond model,
xtabond), I am trying to introduce instrumental variables to fix the
endogeneity problem caused by fixed and random effects regressions.
I have a question concerning the Sargan test of over-identifying
restrictions after using the recommended two-step specification, I find
the Sargan test for all cases in my study with p-value equal 1
suggesting not to reject the over-identifying restrictions, as follows:
Sargan test of over-identifying restrictions:
chi2 (90) = 0.00 Prob > chi2 = 1.0000
However, Does it “P-value equal one” means that I am working on the
right practice of the “Sargan test” or is there any problem with this P-
value? If any, could you give me please your advice to which value
should I rely on? I look forward to your response.
Your cooperation would be much appreciated.
