Dear Austin, Thanks again for your reply. Yes, I had a look at both threads (and a couple of others dealing with the same question). However, until yesterday I only tried to implement the "stacking-approach" - however I was not sure whether stacking is appropriate for my problem since all examples with stacking on statalist involved two IV-regression with the _same_ dependent variable, whereas I have two different dependent variables. Following your suggestion, I implemented the 2-equations-GMM-approach suggested by Tirthankar Chakravarty yesterday. This works perfectly - now I have an estimate of the variance-covariance matrix of all coefficients and can perform tests on the coefficients from both equations. Since this workaround seems rather easy (once you know about it), I now wonder why -suest- cannot be used with -ivreg- / -ivregress- / -ivreg2- I know that Stata says it's because predict after the IV-commands does not allow for a score-option. But since it works with -gmm- it seems a bit odd that it doesn't work with -ivreg- /-ivreg2- and -suest- . Or is there a substantial difference between the common variance-covariance matrix estimated by -gmm- and the one I would hypothetically obtain by using -suest- ? Thanks again for your help!
