Thank you for your reply AbdelRhmen, In fact, my example was just a small one to illustrate my question shortly. The idea wasn't to interpret it, but just to have an idea of my methodological problem. It is true that in reality I have in mind the AIDS system that I used to estimate with "reg3" when I took the linear index of prices (stone index), but now, I want to estimate the model with the nonlinear one, that's why I am interested in the NLSUR command. I want to instrument Prices and expenditures. Thank you. valérie /*********************************************************/ I'm not a user of Stata 10 but i have a few remarks on this: 1) It looks like an estimation of AIDS (Almost ideal demand system) and i don't understand why you try to instrument log price 2. 2) the theorie bhind the specification of price and it's square lnp2 and lnp2^2 as a regressors in item 2 of your system is not clear. 3) Usually what is instrumented is the total expenditure (lnexp) price are supposed exogenous 4) I guess that NLSUR can not treat endogeneity problem 5) conditional on your price index lnP you have a linear system of equation and you could estimate it by reg3 6) Finally if a suppose that your specification is correct you still have a linear system just generate P2=lnp2^2 and replace it on your system HTH AbdelRahmen Selon orozco@toulouse.inra.fr: > > Hi, > > I already posted my question last week, but I didn't receive any ideas of > answer.
