Prof. Nichols, thank you very much for your kind help and the useful link added. However, my Stata 9.2. seems unable to run xtivreg2, just as found by other colleagues (found in the archive of the statalist). >xtivreg2 ... ... , fe small >Error - must have ivreg2 (or ivreg28, for Stata 8 users) version 2.1.15 or greater installed I have tried everything, even reinstalling all ivreg2 files (ivreg2 works at its best) and then again xtivreg2. Nothing, always the same message of "Error". I need a new help... Thanks in advance! Robert ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------- 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.
