Dear Statalist, I am a new user of Stata and I do not Know enough to solve those Two "Warnings" I have got running xtabond2. The first one I do not understand because I use 49 instruments but I have got 510 observations. About the second warning anyone can help me indicating which command should I use to produce and use the generalized inverse to calculate optimal weighting matrix for two-step estimation and how to proceed? I would be so grateful! Here are the results I have got: xi: xtabond2 logGVApc l.logGVApc logPubInvpc logProductiv i.yearid,gmm(logGVApc,lag(2 2)) iv(i.yearid) robust twostep small/*2 lag*//*considering Public Investment as exogenous*/ i.yearid _Iyearid_1-18 (naturally coded; _Iyearid_1 omitted) Favoring speed over space. To switch, type or click on mata: mata set matafavor space, perm. _Iyearid_18 dropped due to collinearity Warning: Number of instruments may be large relative to number of observations. Warning: Two-step estimated covariance matrix of moments is singular. Using a generalized inverse to calculate optimal weighting matrix for two-step estimation. Difference-in-Sargan/Hansen statistics may be negative.
