eivreg depvar [indepvars] [if] [in] [weight] [, options]

options Description ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Model reliab(indepvar # [indepvar # [...]]) specify measurement reliability for each indepvar measured with error

Reporting level(#) set confidence level; default is level(95) display_options control columns and column formats, row spacing, line width, display of omitted variables and base and empty cells, and factor-variable labeling

coeflegend display legend instead of statistics ------------------------------------------------------------------------- indepvars may contain factor variables; see fvvarlist. bootstrap, by, jackknife, rolling, and statsby are allowed; see prefix. Weights are not allowed with the bootstrap prefix. aweights are not allowed with the jackknife prefix. aweights and fweights are allowed; see weight. coeflegend does not appear in the dialog box. See [R] eivreg postestimation for features available after estimation.

eivreg fits errors-in-variables regression models when one or more of the independent variables are measured with error. To use eivreg, you must have an estimate of each independent variable's reliability or assume it is measured without error.


+-------+ ----+ Model +------------------------------------------------------------

reliab(indepvar # [indepvar # [...]]) specifies the measurement reliability for each independent variable measured with error. Reliabilities are specified as pairs consisting of an independent variable name (a name that appears in indepvars) and the corresponding reliability r, 0 < r < 1. Independent variables for which no reliability is specified are assumed to have reliability 1. If the option is not specified, all variables are assumed to have reliability 1, and the result is thus the same as that produced by regress (the ordinary least-squares results).
