Yes. As per the message below, I would sooner trust the iv estimator (IF you have strong instruments).

Best,

Dear Prof.

Thank you for your help.

Yes, I am sure that I am using the same control variables in the models.

For reg: the syntax I used is:
.regress depvar indepvar1 indepvar2 indepvar3 indepvar4 endovar

For ivreg2:
.ivreg2 depvar indepvar1 indepvar2 indepvar3 indepvar4 (endovar = IV),
endog(endovar)

With this result, I think I can conclude that I have endogeneity problem,
right? So what to do in order to solve this problem?


Best,
Quoc

Odd that your OLS estimates is not significant and the iv estimate is.
Perhaps others can shed light on this.

Are you sure you are including the same control variables (exogenous) in
each model?

What, precisely, is the syntax for the reg and ivreg2 models?

Thank you very much for your explanation, Prof.

Yes, it seems to be quite different between iv and ols; for the variable x
(suspect var for endogenous), the model ols shows the coefficient is
.03589
and the p-value 0.615; but the ivreg2 shows coefficient .3302337 and p
value
0.020.
Did you mean that I would better take the ovreg2 for the final result?

According to the endog test, your regressor is probably endogenous
(given that you are close to the commonly-determined critical value of p
<   .05) and thus requires instrumenting.  Are the estimates of iv and ols
very different? If they are, and if your instruments are strong , which
they seem to be judging form the Anderson test and the Stock-Yogo
critical values, you may be better off trusting the inefficient iv
estimate, than the efficient (but probably inconsistent) OLS estimate.

See: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2012-03/msg01264.html

No. I meant -endog- and not -orthog-.

Do you have the latest version of ivreg2?

. which ivreg2
c:\ado\plus\i\ivreg2.ado
*! ivreg2 3.1.04  19mar2012
*! authors cfb&    mes

If not, updated your ivreg2 file:

ssc install ivreg2, replace

Then redo the iv-regression and see what you get.

Your comment: "ivreg2 y (x = z), endog(x)". I guess you meant option
'orthog' right? Because endog did not work on my Stata; I am using Stata
10.
Below is the result; according to this result, as the P-value (0.0600)
is
bigger than 0.5, I guess I can conclude x is not endogenous, right?

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:
