Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

Description

It presents the results from the gmm or gel estimation in the same fashion as summary does for the lm class objects for example. It also compute the tests for overidentifying restrictions.

## S3 method for class 'gmm'
summary(object, ...)
## S3 method for class 'gel'
summary(object, ...)
## S3 method for class 'tsls'
summary(object, vcov = NULL, ...)
## S3 method for class 'summary.gmm'
print(x, digits = 5, ...)
## S3 method for class 'summary.gel'
print(x, digits = 5, ...)
## S3 method for class 'summary.tsls'
print(x, digits = 5, ...)

Arguments

object

An object of class gmm or gel returned by the function gmm or gel

x

An object of class summary.gmm or summary.gel returned by the function summary.gmm summary.gel

digits

The number of digits to be printed

vcov

An alternative covariance matrix computed with vcov.tsls

...

Other arguments when summary is applied to another class object

Value

It returns a list with the parameter estimates and their standard deviations, t-stat and p-values. It also returns the J-test and p-value for the null hypothesis that E(g(θ,X)=0
