st: XTABOND2 tests of autocorrelation and restrictions |

Hi, All

Using the XTABOND2 command I get significant and expected results. But I do not understand how to read the output for the autocorrelation test or the Hansen test. More specifically:

1) Is the Arellano-Bond test for AR(1) in first differences testing for autocorrelation in the full error term Eit or is it testing for autocorrelation in the Vit component of the error term.

2) What are the null and alternative hypothesizes in the Arellano Bond test. Does a P-value of 0.32 indicate that there is or is not autocorrelation?

3) If the P – Value is showing that autocorrelation is occurring in Vit – how can this be dealt with in the XTABOND2 command?

4) What are the null and alternative hypotheses in the Hansen test? Does a P-value of 0.271 indicate that I have used too many instruments?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Daniel Wilde
