IV-2SLS output

Instrumental variables: \LaTeX output code

(xt)ivreg2 is an excellent Stata package for estimating two stage least squares models. Generating output suitable for typesetting in Latex can be tedious, particularly for first stage results and supplementary statistics, like the Angrist-Pischke multivariate F statistic.

Here is a helpful snippet of code. This solution is scalable for a number of related, specialized statistics that are not immediately available in standard .ado scripts. You can download a working version of the .do (as txt) file here.
