```Thanks Jay,
Actually this is not our main model (rather it is an "auxiliary" one
aiming to validate some relations) our main model is a count one with
IVs.
I'm not sure I understood what did you mean by: problems with the
residuals, I ran the  IVregress and received the following stats.
(with some of the coefficients signif. as expected )
Instrumental variables (2SLS) regression      Number of obs =  603
Wald chi2(14) =  169.62
Prob > chi2   =  0.0000
R-squared     =  0.3208
Root MSE      =  1.0537
