st: Re: RE: Goldfeldt-Quant versus -hettest-
Greene does note (page 509, 4th ed) that if the disturbances in the two groups
are normally distributed, then the Goldfeld-Quandt statistic is exactly
distributed as an F. If not, then the F distribution is only approximate and an
alternative with known large sample properties - such as White's test - may be
