Hi Statalist,

I am using STATA 11.1 on Windows 7. I estimated a model using "ivregress":

. ivregress 2sls D.lemp L.D.lrgva L.L.D.lrgva (D.lrgva = L.D.lrpcg L.D.lrfinv L.D.lrgva L.D.rgexp L.L.D.lrgva) if tin(2001q1,2007q4), vce(hac nwest)

After the estimation, I do the following specification test:

. estat endogenous

  Tests of endogeneity
  Ho: variables are exogenous

  HAC score chi2(1)               =  .253277  (p = 0.6148)
    (Prewhitening performed with 1 lag)

  HAC regression F(1,12)          =  3.21364  (p = 0.0983)
    (Based on Bartlett kernel with 15 lags)

The HAC score test indicates that the the null cannot be rejected (p-value is 0.6148); on the other hand, the regression-based test indicates that the null hypothesis can be rejected at the 10 percent level (p-value is 0.0983). Thus, the two tests give conflicting results regarding the endogeneity of the regressor (D.lrgva). What is the best practice in such situations of conflicting result?

Thanks in advance.
