st: xtdpd: efficiency, consistency

Hi all,

When I run the regression using "twostep  hascons vce(robust)" I get
in some cases a rather large standard error, which renders the
coefficient insignificant. Abond test is, naturally,  OK.
When I run the same regression using "twostep  hascons" (without the
robust error specification), I get highly significant results, but in
many cases estat sargan rejects.
I tried many variants of instruments, but cannot change the
specification because this is the model I am testing.
Naturally, the coefficients in both types of regressions are identical.
It is clear that I have an efficiency problem.
My question is whether I can claim that the solution is consistent:
(A) due to the fact that coefficients obtained in both types of
regressions are identical, and (B) due to the fact that I have some
several thousand observations supporting it.
Your input will be much appreciated
Happy holidays to all
Ari Dothan
