Dear all, How does one test for the different kinds of endogeneity and what is the order of testing in STATA? The two possible kinds of endogeneity I am dealing with are (i) simultaneity or omitted variable endogeneity (I know I should use the C test) (ii) country-specific endogeneity (I know I should use the Hausman) My dependent variable is growth. I have a cross-section with 31 countries and 6 four-year periods. With regards to (i) above, I have 10 exogenous included RHS variables and many exogenous excluded instruments. Also should I first for auto-correlation and heteroskedasticity in STATA before testing for endogeneity or is is better to do the reverse?
