Hello,
Could you please help me how I can find pvalue for Jstatistics in simulataneous equation with GMM?
Specifically, I am looking "the degrees of freedom (df)" number for simulatneous equation with GMM method. I could not find how to calculate it.
IF I know that, I think I can find pvalue by using
the p value: pval=chisq(jstatistics,df).
Thanks in advance

Re: p value for Jstatistics for simultaneous equation (gmm)
In general the degrees of freedom are equal to the number of moment conditions (instruments) minus the number of coefficients.

Gareth,
Thanks for reply and your help.
I am using Eviews system GMMHac
For eviews systemgmm HAC, for the following model , total moment conditions is just total instrument number?
Could you please help me for it?
In 2 equations, I have total 12 instruments (including constant), so total moments condition is just 12? and
thus degree of freedom: 129 =3 ?
Thanks

Re: p value for Jstatistics for simultaneous equation (gmm)
Dear Gareth and Kelaynak,
I also have a problem in calculating Degree of freedom in GMM methods for the system of equations. I have 4 equations with 4 endogenous variables with 36 total exogenous variables in the system (4 variables and 32 fixed effect dummies). I use all the exogenous variables for the instrumental variables. Total of parameters to be estimated in system of equations are 15 parameters including intercept (excluding 32 dummies).
Another important questions is that how you calculate the HansenJstatistic in this system of equations? (Do you calculate Hansen Jstatistic for every equation and then make all of the Hansen Jstatistic from every equation as an average?)
I am really looking forward to hearing your response.
Thank you very much
Best regards,
Maman
