Thanks John,

By the way, when I tried -overid- after 3SLS, STATA returned the following error message
"overid works only after ivreg, ivreg2; use overidxt after xtivreg" ...

OK...that chi-square is just a Wald test that the predictors 
simultaneously = 0. It is not an overidentification statistic. You 
should run that statistic in any case if you are overidentified by using 
the userwritten command -overid- (available from SSC) to ensure that the 
model constraints are tenable.  After running reg3 just type -overid-. 
Although a negative r-square is not necessarily a bad thing, it could 
indicate misspecification, and the overidentification stat will catch that.

Best,
J.

P.S. it is always good and saves everyone time if you post your output 
so we are all on the same page.

I'm in doubt that it is the identification statistic described in the prior response to this post, since it is significant in text book examples with positive R-square at: http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/examples/greene/greene16.htm.

Hence, I shouldn't see a negative r-square when the chi-square test statistic rejects the null that ybar is as good as my model.

As I understand, this can happen when the mean of the dependent variable is a better predictor than the model.  However, the p-values of the chi-square statistic are significant.  What if anything can I determine about model fit from the R-square and chi-square statistics in the output of reg3?
