Andy may want to take a look at the following paper: Kyle Rehnstrom. Racial Salary Discrimination in the NBA: 2008-2009. http://business.uni.edu/economics/Themes/rehnstrom.pdf and to this URL: http://www.stata.com/meeting/italy11/abstracts/italy11_capelli.pdf and its references.

I am looking at the factors in determining nba player's salary. Race and ethnicity are two of my variables, they both turn out to be significant in affecting the player's salary. However, I would like to compare them again - the race variable (white players and non-white players) and ethnicity variable (international players and US born players) after controlling the performance.

Hence, there is no need for robust standard error in your OLS.

After I have entered the command 'estat hettest' after my regression, the following has come up: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- -- Breusch-Pagan / Cook-Weisberg test for heteroskedasticity Ho: Constant variance Variables: fitted values of lnsalary chi2(1) = 1.62 Prob > chi2 = 0.2037 Does it mean there is heteroskedasticity in my model? After that, I have done the same regression and added (, robust) at the end of it. However, it seems that nothing has changed. Should I go ahead with the OLS or white standard errors? Thank you very much for all your help and time again! :) Andy ________________________________________ From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] on behalf of carlo.lazzaro@tiscalinet.it [carlo.lazzaro@tiscalinet.it] Sent: 22 April 2012 13:20 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Cc: Kong, Chun Subject: R: st: control a variable in stata Andy may want to check for heteroskedasticity after -regress- via - estat hettest- ( from -regress postestimation- suite). As an aside, Huber-White sandwich estimator is implemented via the -robust- option available with most Stata commands (including -regress-), as reported in Baum CF.

I have run both poisson and OLS, the OLS gives a R2 of 0.6175 and Poisson has a R2 of 0.6250, however, all the research that I have gone through is using OLS. Therefore, I think I should go with OLS, but I really appreciate for your suggestion and time. Most of the reserachs stressed in desribing the variable and analyzing the resutls, however, very few have explained the methodology. One have used white standard corrected errors because there is a difference between the adjusted standard errors and the normal standard errors, suggesting there is small level of heteroskedascticity. Therefore, the model is regressed using the white standard errors. I have google something relate to white standard error, however, i still do not understand whether i should follow this approach. I am sorry for all the silly question. Once again, thank you very much for your time and help. :) Andy ________________________________________ From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] on behalf of Nora Reich [nhmreich@googlemail.com] Sent: 21 April 2012 20:38 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: control a variable in stata Andy, by the way, what is the value of the R2? It gives you a hint on how much of the variation in salary can be explained by your model. I would improve the model with new variables (as proposed earlier) and see which ones have a significant effect and which ones lead to substantial increases in R2. Nora Am 21.
