Robustification only affects the variances and the covariances.
Coefficients stay the same, which means that Model SS, Residual SS and d.f. remains the same.
But the F-test should take into account the new variances and covariances calculated under robustification.

Why don't you post some output using a commonly accessible file such as auto.dta
webuse auto
will get you the file

By the way, Stata v10.1 does not produce the model ss, residual ss, under robustification.

I have a short question regarding the F-test for STATA 10.0 and EVIEWs 6.0 when using a simple OLS multiple regression model: If I use the Stata command "reg..., robust" to estimate a multiple regression model I get the same coef., std. err, t-stat and r2 as if I use Eviews OLS regression with white heteroskedasticity-const std error & covariance. However, the only thing which differs is the F-test which is higher for Eviews than for Stata.
When I use the Model SS, Residual SS and the respective d.f. of model estimated with STATA I can calculate the F-test manually whereby I get out the same F-test as in Eviews. Does somebody know why there is a difference in the F-test but everything else is equal when using STATA (reg...,robust) and Eviews (reg with white hetero. consist. st errors)?

Many thanks!
