Dear Mavilde, you should first work through the paper from the author of the routine xtabond2, which describes the program in great detail: David Roodman, 2009. "How to do xtabond2: An introduction to difference and system GMM in Stata," Stata Journal, StataCorp LP, vol. 9(1), pages 86-136, March. The generalized inverse to calculate the optimal weighting matrix is generated automatically. The warning "Number of instruments may be large relative to number of observations" points to the fact that your number of instruments is higher than your number of groups as a rule of thumb to indicate that there may be problems of instrument proliferation. To understand the potential problems coming with a large instrument set, read: David Roodman, 2009. "A Note on the Theme of Too Many Instruments," Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, Department of Economics, University of Oxford, vol. 71(1), pages 135-158, 02. Best, Jan -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Mavilde Modesto Gesendet: Sunday, June 09, 2013 12:36 AM An: 'Sergiy Radyakin' Cc: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: Use of xtabond2 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.
