Hello,
I am using ivreg to perform a 2 stage least squares 
analysis.  It turns out that the stage 1 outcome has a 
curvilinear relationship with the stage 2 outcome.  Does 
anyone know if it is appropriate to include a square of the 
stage 1 outcome in the stage 2 model?  Does Stata have 
another method for doing 2sls that might better account for 
this curvilinear relationship?
Thank you,
Josh
