-ivreg2- and thus -xtivreg2- both from SSC have a lot of tests. Have a look at them... P.S. "grouped" makes me think about a cluster option rather than a panel command P.P.S. don't forget to have a lot at -cmp- (from ssc, too), which lets you combine several commands (and thus e.g. to allow different instruments for different endogenous variables) in order to make some 2SLS-like estimations Nicola At 02.33 15/02/2008 -0500, Renuka Metcalfe wrote: >Hi > >I would like to find out if training which is one of >my RHS variable is an endogenous variable.
