A Google search of "white diagonal standard errors" brought up this page: http://www.econ.canterbury.ac.nz/personal_pages/bob_reed/Courses/ECON_324/Week7/Assignment_Week7.pdf " Another difference is that Stata does not have as many options for specifying the structure of the error variance-covariance matrix as Eview does. When estimating OLS, there are only three options: (i) conventional OLS standard errors, (ii) “robust” standard errors -- which is called “White diagonal” standard errors in Eviews; and (iii) “Clustered robust” standard errors -- which is very close to what EViews calls either “White period” or “White cross-section” standard errors, depending on whether the “cluster” variable is the cross-sectional (e.g. firm) or time series (e.g. year) variable" Scott On Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 1:20 AM, Mohammad Reza Farzanegan <Mohammad_Reza.Farzanegan@mailbox.tu-dresden.de> wrote: > Thank you for your suggestions.
