Instruments

A list of instruments to be tested for orthogonality. Note the instruments must have been included in the original equation.

Examples

equation eq1.gmm y c x1 x2 @ z1 z2 z3 z4

e1.orthogtest z1 z4

estimates an equation, called EQ1, and estimates it via GMM with four instruments Z1, Z2, Z3, Z4, and then performs the Orthogonality Test where Z1 and Z4 are tested for orthogonality.
