Dear Professor Shaffer, I am sorry to ask you further,and such a long question, but I want to be sure that I understand correctly. Thus, from my understanding, I have two options: Either I run ivreg2 and get the The K-P statitsics, and then compare it to the tabulated values of Staiger and Stock(2002), Or I explicitly estimate the reduced forms for the two endogenous variables, compute the F-tests for the excluded instruments in each reduced form and compare those to 10. Is this correct? Since both options are not going to give me the "perfect" answer, I wanted to do it in both ways, and see what happens, but after installing ivreg2 and ranktest, I am not able to get the first stage K-P statistics or the cragg donald statistics. After running ivreg2 y x (y1 y2=z1 z2), ffirst robust Stata reports only the first stage F (which is not even robust) and the shea statistics, nothing more. Is it possible that this happens because I do not have the appropriate stata version to obtain K-P or Cragg Donald? I am currently using Stata 8. I have also access to Stata 10, but there ivreg2 does not work, and it seems that K-P is a special feature of ivreg2 and not of ivregress. Is this what is going on?
