Professor Austin, Your advise helped me very much. I performed the AR test with the cluster option and obtained very good result. I only want to be sure that I did everything ok. Our basic model was ivreg2 y1 x1 x2 (y2 = z1 ), ffirst robust cluster (x3) (by the way the clustered t -statistic in this estimation was -2.08) Since my instrument was potentially weak I wanted a correct p-value (or t -statistic) for the test that the coefficient of y2 is different from zero (in this case y1-y2b0 =y1). Thus, i regress the following regression: regress y1 z1 x1 x2, robust cluster (x3) the t-statisic for the coefficient of z1 is the correct t-statistic for the test that the coefficient of y2 is equal to zero (am i correct?).This test is in the ivreg2 ffirst output, so you needn't do it by hand (except to double check). Also see the discussion in Baum-Schaffer-Stillman, The Stata Journal, Vol. 7, No. 4, 2007. Cheers, Mark Prof. Mark E.

The t-statistic is -2.43. Am i correct that now i can claim that y2 as a significnat negative effect on y1 based on the -2.43.
