Caspar, Can you recast your setup as a panel? If you define a panel identifier that is =1 when the dep var is A and =2 when the dep var is B, you can -xtset- or -tsset- the data. --Mark > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of > Caspar Bijleveld > Sent: 18 August 2011 14:04 > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: FW: st: ivreg2 with 1 lag ac correction, robust SE > and cluster > > > > > Dear Statalisters, > > In my research I have used ivreg2 as a substitute for a > newey-west regression in order to get the r^2 for each model. > This worked perfectly fine. > > Now I have a question about running a regression with ivreg2 > including lags for autocorrelation, setting it to robust to > correct for heteroskedasticity and I need to cluster my data. > This is the case.
