Dear Kit, thank you for your help and gave me a visual example!

However, I still need to decide which one or both are endogeous,
which is a previous step of regression later.

Only deciding the endogeneity first can I decide the equation ultimately.

Could you please give me any suggestion ?

Thank you very much!

Best regards,

Rose.

and wants to know how these results could be obtained after estimating
the model

ivreg2 y z1--z8 (x1 x2= z9--z12)

Apparently if you ask "is x1 correlated with error" (equivalent to
using endog(x1) option on ivreg2) the evidence against the null that
it is orthogonal is weak. Likewise for x2. If you ask "can we run the
whole thing as OLS" there is sufficient evidence to reject. The result
of a joint test cannot be predicted from those of its components; you
can
reg y x1 x2 x3
with insignificant t's on x2 and x3 (particularly if their correlation
is high) but
test x2 x3
will strongly reject. Likewise here.
