Dear Stata users,
I am estimating a 3SLS regression (for an Almost Ideal demand system) with reg3 command. I do not know how to test whether my "excluded instruments" are weak or not (correlation with endogenous regressors). I know that with "ivreg2" there are some diagnostics for weak instruments. For example, the partial F-statistic of the reduced form regression is required to be higher than 10. Do you think that these diagnostics are valid for system estimation like reg3? Thank you.

The advice on a first-stage F greater than 10 is about 7 years out of date now (Stock and Yogo overturned in 2002 that advice from Staiger and Stock from 1997, more or less), and applies only to a single endogenous regressor, in any case. -ivreg2- (from SSC) will give you relevant diagnostics (read the help file) if you estimate one equation at a time; if you have a recursive system of equations, these will be very good measures of the strength of your excluded instruments. If not, they will be imperfect, but better than nothing.
