Hi Statalisters,

Austin,is it possible for you to build the exogeneity test into
-ivpois- as you promised to do below?

Is there a negative binomial equivalent of -ivpois- since I believe
-ivpois- pertains to a poisson regression while I am interested in
running a negative binomial regression in the instrumental variable
framework? Hence, I am referring to something on the lines of
-ivnbreg- (which does not exist at the moment). I have a case of
over-dispersion (mean of count variable = 79, variance of same count
variable = 2003), hence I believe that -ivpois- is not appropriate.
