Roma <fr1975@katamail.com>: The difference between ivreg2 and xtivreg2 is more or less the same as the difference between reg and xtreg; see the [XT] xtreg manual entry. In short, if yit = Xit b + Wi c + uit then yi(t-1) = Xi(t-1) b + Wi c + ui(t-1) and yit - yi(t-1) = Xit b - Xi(t-1) b + uit - ui(t-1) which is estimated via the -fd- option on -xtivreg2-. Also if yit = Xit b + Wi c + uit then Es(yis) = Es(Xis) b + Wi c + Es(uis) where Es is the mean over all t, and yit - Es(yis) = Xit b - Es(Xis) b + uit - Es(uis) which is estimated via the -fe- option on -xtivreg2-. Note this applies even if you don't observe Wi and can't estimate c, so by using -xtivreg2- you may eliminate another source of bias. -xtivreg2- is a program that transforms the data appropriately, then calls -ivreg2- to do the estimation. Hence a "wrapper" for -ivreg2-.
