Steve, Date sent: Fri, 13 Feb 2004 13:43:22 -0500 (EST) From: Stephen Schmidt <schmidsj@union.edu> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: heteroskedasticity question Send reply to: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > I'm trying to use Stata 7 to perform White's test for heteroskedasticity > of unknown form. It appears to me from the help documents that Stata > does not have a command to automatically perform this test; is that > correct? Nope, unless you are being very literal. Try -findit heteroskedasticity white- from within an internet-aware Stata and you'll see some add-ins that will do it. One that isn't listed is our -ivhettest-, which will do White's test (amongst others) for OLS as well as for IV, and which is also downloadable. With respect to your other question, "Huber/White/sandwich" is the same thing as "White", though I would add that Eicker (sp?) should probably be added to the list of originators who deserve the credit.
