Dear Tracy

I believe this will do the trick. If you run into trouble with matrix size in your problem (you probably have more than 22 obs.), you could (a) find a copy of Stata/SE or (b) rewrite all this in Mata (which is how it should be done anyway). But the bottom line is that a Hansen J stat is just the minimized value of the criterion function for minimum-distance estimation. Under the null that the overid. restrictions are appropriate (the instruments are exogenous), J ~ Chi^2 with appropriate d.f. For 3SLS, there is still a 1x1 criterion function that is being minimized, and you just have to figure out how to write it down. Thankfully Davidson and MacKinnon have done a good job of laying that out.

Here is an example that I think is doing the right thing with good ole' Klein Model I:

* overidentification test for 3SLS (reg3) with constraints

* logic without constraints following discussion in Davidson and MacKinnon,

* Econometric Theory and Methods, p. 532

* CFBaum 17aug2005

webuse klein, clear

constraint define 1 [consump]govt = [wagepriv]govt

* must keep track of constraints on coeff vector, since Stata's e(b)

* will contain duplicate entries

* could get it from the rank of e(V)

local nconstraint 1

reg3 (consump wagepriv wagegovt govt invest) ///

(wagepriv consump govt capital1 taxnetx) , c(1)

mat esigma = e(Sigma)

mat beta = e(b)

g iota = 1 if e(sample)

local exog `e(exog)' iota

* construct the 3SLS resids and vec them

predict double econsump, resid equation(consump)

predict double ewagepriv, resid equation(wagepriv)

mkmat econsump ewagepriv if e(sample), mat(e)

mat e3 = vec(e)

* construct the matrix of exogenous vars in system

mkmat `exog' if e(sample), mat(w)

mat pw = w*syminv(w'*w)*w'

* Kronecker product with esigma

mat middle = syminv(esigma) # pw

* GMM criterion function, a la Davidson & MacKinnon (12.61) and p.532

* crit = e3' (sigma^-1 kronecker pw) e3 ~ Hansen/Sargan stat (equiv to J)

* where pw = w (w'w)^-1 w', and w is matrix of all exogenous vars in system

mat crit = e3' * middle * e3

scalar crit = crit[1,1]

* D.F. : #eqns * #exog - #betas estimated (net)

matrix df = rowsof(esigma) * colsof(w) - (colsof(beta) - `nconstraint')

scalar df = df[1,1]

di "Total # exog in system : " colsof(w)

di "Coeffs estimated net of constraints : " colsof(beta) - `nconstraint'

di "Hansen/Sargan : " crit

di "with d.f. : " df

scalar chi2 = chiprob(df,crit)

di "Hansen/Sargan Chi2 p-value : " chi2

Dear Mr. Christopher Baum:

My name is Tracy. I am a doctoral student in University of Washington.

I am trying to run an over-identification test for a constrained four-equation simultaneous model.

I used regs to run simultaneous model. But I couldn’t find a way to run over-identification test for reg3.

Could you give me some suggestions on how to run an over- identification test for reg3

or is there procedure that I can run both a constrained four- equation simultaneous model and

over-identificaiton test? Your help is greatly appreciated!!!

Best regards,

Tracy Xu
