You can't. It is actually a non-trivial problem to get the
standard errors right in this case: How many observations 
are you using for this estimate? You can try implementing
the procedure proposed by:

B. M. S. Van Praag, T. K. Dijkstra and J. Van Velzen (1985)
"Least-squares theory based on general distributional 
assumptions with an application to the incomplete 
observations problem", Psychometrica, 50(1):25-36.

Hope this helps,
