You haven't given us the regression output, but my guess would be that you are using the cluster-robust covariance estimator, and that have as many or more excluded instruments than you have clusters (or panel units). The artificial regression used for weak-ID-robust inference involves testing all the excluded instruments. If you have more excluded instruments than clusters, you will run into problems because the cluster-robust vcv won't be full rank. In that case, the maximum number of constraints you can test will be the number of clusters (minus 1, I think), which isn't enough. But this is just a guess! --Mark > Thank you all, > > > Camden Roberts > * > * For searches and help try: > * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search > * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq > * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ > -- Heriot-Watt University is a Scottish charity registered under charity number SC000278. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
