Thanks, Guido. But what happens if I do not have an endogeneous variable? If I am not mistaken, I need at least one to use xthtaylor, and I cannot just take any variable in the list of my independent variables and make it play the role of the endogeneous variable, can I? Thanks very much. Barbara.

Barbara,
you might have a look at the Hausman-Taylor IV estimator. See e.g. Wooldridge, 2002, Econometric analysis of x-sectional and panel data, pp. 325-328 or Verbeek, 2004, A guide to modern econometrics, pp. 353-355. In Stata, type help xthtaylor.
HTH, Guido
