Re: R-help Digest, Vol 185, Issue 1

Dear Luke,

it true that the number is not immediately displayed in the
GMM-regression output using the plm package. To get the number of
instruments (incl. exogenous variables and time dummies) you have to type:

       k <- model    # so that k is the pgmm-estimation output (an
object of class c("pgmm","panelmodel")
       ninst <- ncol(k$W[[1]])    # the number of instruments is simply
count as the number of columns in the matrix of instruments

Best regards,

> Hi, My name is Luke and I come from Poland. I have one question, maybe very simple, but I can not resolve it. In dynamic panel data (GMM estimator) after running the model, I recieve a AR test and Sargan test, but the "number of instruments" are not displayed. In Stata and Gretl this informatios is given, in R no. My question is, how to obtain the number of instruments?.
