st: Re: Newey estimations
Thanks to Clive for his enthusiastic endorsement of the "wildly
popular"* ivreg2 and reminder that yes, it does OLS, HOLS and "Newey-
West" if asked nicely (although a somewhat less bellicose set of
references to its strengths might be appropriate given the daily
contents of CNN).
To clarify, ivreg bw(2) == newey lag(1)
bw(5) == newey lag(4)
and so on.
ivreg2 also implements numerous other kernel estimators (beyond the
Bartlett kernel employed by newey) and it may be worth trying them
out. There is nothing sacrosant about Bartlett; other kernels may do
a better job of estimating the LR variance in finite samples.
A followup paper to Baum, Schaffer, Stillman, Stata Journal 3:1 2003
describing all of the new bells and whistles in the ivreg2 suite is
now in draft form. When we finalize the draft and submit to SJ, we
will circulate the draft.
