Hi all,

I'm using Stata 12.1 and am getting different result for ivregress and ivreg2 2sls. To my understanding they should be equivalent, which makes me believe there is a detail in the estimation of one of them that I am missing. My code is below:

ivregress 2sls totpovrt00 totpovrt90 $mining90 $shchg90 $base90 $full90 (mtmscquan90_00=maxsr1) if arc==1, vce(robust) first

ivreg2 totpovrt00 totpovrt90 $mining90 $shchg90 $base90 $full90 (mtmscquan90_00=maxsr1) if arc==1, robust first

I started with an extremely parsimonious model which gave me the same results using both commands. As I added variables, the results began to differ. If I add any of the following variables it leads to different results between the two commands.

Variable	Obs	Mean		Std. Dev.	Min		Max
