The help files for -ivreg2- and -xtivreg2- have a lot of worked examples using real data. There is also a discussion at http://pped.org/stata/ciwod.pdf, page 14, that has a cross-sectional example: use http://fmwww.bc.edu/ec-p/data/wooldridge/card, clear loc x "exper* smsa* south mar black reg662-reg669" reg lw educ 'x' ivreg2 lw 'x' (educ=nearc2 nearc4), first endog(educ) ivreg2 lw 'x' (educ=nearc2 nearc4), gmm ivreg2 lw 'x' (educ=nearc2 nearc4), liml but note from the earlier discussion in that paper and the papers describing -ivreg2- that you do not run two regressions in practice, and that all the exogenous regressors (x, presuming g is a fixed effect and w is an error term) in your example are included in the first stage. So, making a dataset with names that match yours: webuse psidextract, clear ren lw h ren wks d ren union x ren occ z and comparing the naive two-stage estimator and the correct one-step estimator: xtreg h d x z, fe i(id) g ok=e(sample) xtreg d x z if ok, fe i(id) predict dhat if ok xtreg h dhat x if ok, fe i(id) xtivreg h x (d=z), fe i(id) should produce identical point estimates but very different inferences. The last line is the "string" you requested, but I prefer xtivreg2 h x (d=z), fe i(id) cl(id) for reasons discussed in http://pped.org/stata/ciwod.pdf, and elsewhere.
