Suryadipta, Rodrigo, The way -xthtaylor- works is by transforming/creating variables, and then using -regress- to estimate the transformed equation. This equation uses IV estimation. The way -xtoverid- works is by doing the same transformation and then using -ivreg2- to estimate it. This generates a Sargan-Hansen overid stat that is reported by -xtoverid-. There's also an internal check that the transformed regression results from -ivreg2- are the same as those reported by the original -xthtaylor- estimation. Calling -xtoverid- with the undocumented -noisily- option will cause it to report this internal -ivreg2- estimation. Suryadipta, if you do this and -xtoverid- gets this far, you might be able to tell what's wrong or get the overid stat from the output. I suspect that what is causing the problem is the collinearity of yr1: it gets dropped by -xthtaylor-, and this may be causing -xtoverid- to get confused. Omitting it from the estimation by hand may solve the problem. In any case, Suryadipta, if you can send me your dataset offlist so I can reproduce the problem, I can fix the xtoverid bug. --Mark > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of > Roy,Suryadipta > Sent: 26 July 2007 00:42 > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: Re: st: RE: Question on xthtaylor > > Dear Nick, Rodrigo, and Mark, > > Thank you very much indeed for your suggestions- I shall > closely follow what Nick and Rodrigo had suggested as regards > the R-sq and the robust standard errors.
