The example provided in help document is " ivregress 2sls rent pcturban
(hsngval = faminc i.region)", which indicates  the endogenous variable is
"hsngval" and the number of endogenous variable is one. Now, my model has
two endogenous variables, "ivregress 2sls y x1 (x2=x3 x4) (x5=x6 x7)", this
command is wrong. I am wondering whether there is command that handles two
endogenous variables x2 and x5 at same time.  Thanks for any suggestion.

Best Regards,
Lynn Lee

My estimation model has two endogenous explanatory variables (cross-section
data set). The command "ivregress 2sls" or "ivregress gmm" are suitable for
one endogenous variable. What specific command I can use if I want to handle
these two endogenous variables at same time in Stata? And what command for
handling more than one endogenous variables in panel data is used? 

The syntax for -ivregress- is

        ivregress estimator depvar [varlist1] (varlist2 = varlist_iv) [if]
[in] [weight] [, options]

Note that -varlist2- is a varlist, not a varname. Thus you may put as many
variables as you wish into -varlist2-, s.t. the order condition for
identification, which requires that -varlist_iv- has at least as many
elements as -varlist2-.

In panel data, use -xtivreg-, which uses the same syntax.

For a broader set of features, -ssc desc ivreg2- and -ssc xtivreg2- and the
two Stata Journal papers by Baum, Schaffer, Stillman referenced in their
help files.
