Dear Maarten,

thank you for your answer. Of course the p-value I was referring to is greater than 0.1 (and lower tha 0.2).

I'm using the xtabond2 command and the Hansen test of

reliable when  clustering?

I don't know the answer, but I do know that small p-values
(close to 0) indicate significant results, i.e. a rejection
of the null-hypothesis. Large p-values (close to 1) indicate
non-significant results, i.e. you are not able to reject
the null-hypothesis.

(The limit .20 is very unusual, usualy .05 is chose and
sometimes .10  or .01)
