Hi all,

I am trying to figure out xtabond2. I don't see why this command gives me 42 instruments

xtabond2 lnyp l(1/2).lnyp yr1988-yr2009, gmm(l(1).lnyp, laglimits(1 2)) robust noleveleq

This equation gives me 56 instruments

 xtabond2 lnyp l(1/2).lnyp yr1988-yr2009, gmm(l(1).lnyp, laglimits(1 3)) robust noleveleq

Is it counting instruments for each year? I don't quite get it.

By the way, there are 1752 observations, 122 panels.

I'd appreciate the info. Also, I am reading "How to do xtabond2". Its very informative, but I am still unclear.

Thanks!

-Steve
