st: cluster option of ivreg2
Dear Stata Users,
I have a problem with the cluster option of ivreg2.
I am running the following regression:
ivreg2 logw X P (T T*P = Z That*P), cluster(personid)
this is using IV in a difference in difference regression where T is the
treatment group, P is post-reform dummy and T*P is the interaction term of
The use of That*P as an instrument, where That is obtained from a fist stage
regression of T on the exogenous regressors (X and P) and the instruments Z,
has been already suggested in Stata list in another context (Mark Shaffer in
reply to Steve Morris):
The cluster(personid) is required because it's a panel of individual wages.
All this works when I use the ivreg command, when I use the ivreg2 command
it says "matrix not symmetric".
Is there something wrong with the use of IV in the diff-in-diff framework or
the difference between ivreg and ivreg2 is due to the the way the commands
handles the cluster option?
