Sharon, Sascha, It depends on whether Sharon wants to cluster on one or two variables. -suest- lets you cluster on one variable, and the code Austin Nichols posted last year in http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2009-11/msg01485.html shows how to replicate this by stacking (with minor differences in the SEs because of differences in dof adjustments). -ivreg-, -ivreg2- and -ivregress- don't produce scores so -suest- won't work but stacking does. All straightforward if Sharon wants to cluster on one variable. But it looks like Sharon wants to cluster on two variables. Now if one variable is nested in the other, it's still easy - just cluster on the "larger" one. For example, if the data were on individuals and you wanted to cluster on individual and household, then clustering on household is enough (assuming there are no individuals who change household). If the two variables aren't nested, then you can still cluster on both using 2-way clustering of Cameron-Gelbach-Miller/Thompson. This is supported in the latest version of -ivreg2-, and is discussed in the -ivreg2- help file and in the Stata user group presentation by Baum-Nichols-Schaffer. The latter is available at http://ideas.repec.org/p/boc/bost10/11.html. I am pretty sure that the only thing you need to do to implement this is to use Austin's code and just change the stacked estimation so that it calls -ivreg2- with 2-way clustering, e.g., ivreg2 wage (hours=ten union) n, cl(idcode hours) Cheers, Mark > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of > Sascha Heller > Sent: 17 August 2010 23:41 > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Cc: Sascha Heller > Subject: Re: st: Re: test of the equality of coefficients in > two models > > Okay, understood. cl(idcode hours) obviously won't work. > > Just providing an idea: use reg3 (with an 2sls command) > instead of ivregress.
