st: interpret xtabond one-step results |

Dear Stata users Could anyone please help me on the interpretation of the one-step results as shown in the following example: 1) how to report the coefficients and Z-values of the independent variables? I mean, instead of reporting as Wit and Wi(t-1) separately, how to get the coefficient and Z-value for W itself? And how to tell the significance level for W, if (P>|z|) for D1 is 0.000 (significant at 1% level) while (P>|z|) for LD is 0.100 (significant at 10% level)? 2) For Sargan test of over-identifying restrictions, is the (prob>chi2) the probability of accepting the null hypotheses of valid instruments? In this example, it seems to show the strong evidence against the null. Does it mean the specification is not valid at all? 3) For AR(1) and AR(2) at the bottom of the output, is the (pr>z) the probability of accepting the null hypotheses of no first-order and second-order serial correlation? If the residuals are not serially correlated, should there be evidence of significant negative first-order serial correlation (i.e., pr>z close to 0) and not rejecting the null of no second-order serial correlation (i.e., pr>z close to 1) ? . xtabond n l(0/1).w k , lags(2) Arellano-Bond dynamic panel data Number of obs = 611 Group variable (i): id Number of groups = 140 Wald chi2(5) = 350.58 Time variable (t): year min number of obs = 4 max number of obs = 6 mean number of obs = 4.364286 One-step results -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- n | Coef.
