Dear Prof. Antonakis,

Thank you very much for your quick support. 

I followed your suggestion: 
"reg y x
est store one
ivregress 2sls y (x=z)
est store two
hausman one two"

And I got this result: 

Test:  Ho:  difference in coefficients not systematic

                  chi2(1) = (b-B)'[(V_b-V_B)^(-1)](b-B)
                          =        3.31
                Prob>chi2 =      0.0687
                (V_b-V_B is not positive definite)

With is result, can I conclude that no endogeneity problem?

Thanks,
Best,
Hoang Dinh Quoc

Hi:

I am not quite sure what you have done here.

If you want to do this "by hand" do an augmented regression:

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/endogeneity.html

Else, use the -endog- option in the user-written program, ivreg2, 
available from ssc (i.e., ssc install ivreg2, replace), e.g. (for 
dependent variable y, endogenous regressor x, and instrument z):

ivreg2 y (x = z), endog(x).

Or do the usual hausman test via Stata, e.g.,

reg y x
est store one
ivregress 2sls y (x=z)
est store two
hausman one two

Finally, you can do this in the new Stata command, -sem- using maximum 
likelihood:

sem (y<-x) (x<-z), cov(e.y*e.x)

The test of the correlation between the disturbances is the Hausman 
test, as we explain in detail here:
