I am guessing you mean the following: - you have model where you believe that you need to use an IV estimator because you added a laged dependent variable as a predictor. - You have a second model that did not include the laged dependent variable, so you concluded that you did not have to use an IV estimator Both models contain a variable x You are interested in the hypothesis that the effect of x is equal in both models. Sounds a bit similar to a setup for a Hausman test, so maybe you can look into that literature to see if that can give you some inspiration on how to takle your problem. Maybe somebody else on the list has a bright idea? -- Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
