Eric, thanks a lot. It just I do not get a thing. I read in  Mr. Baum's book that the first stage regression is to test the relevance of the instruments. The AR test I am talking about  (Anderson and Rubin 1949) tests the whether we have a confidence region for the estimated parameter even if the presence of weak instruments. Am I correct?
So I am wondering: I estimate with generalised method of moments, I assume that I have one endogenous regressor and after that test if the parameter I estimated for the endogenous regressor has a confidence region in the case that some of my instruments are not relevant? If someone can tell me if I am wrong or right I would deeply appreciate it. Thnks. Dan.

add the option -first- to your -ivreg2- command.
Have a look at the help file for ivreg2: -help ivreg2- for more details.

Hi! I am somehow new to this forum, and stata:). I was wondering if someone could tell what package is needed to perform Anderson Rubin test for weak instruments, I mean the one that is robust to weak instruments not the one reported bi ivreg2 for overidentyfing conditions. I downloaded condivreg package but I have more than one endogenous regressors so I don't need CLR test, but AR test. Thanks! Hope to get a reply!
