Hi folks,

   I run two version of WLS:

1.  regress y x [aweight = 1/exp(v)]

2. vwls y x , sd(sqrt(exp(v)))

The estimates of parameters are exactly the same, while the standard errors are totally different: the ratio of the two standard errors for each estimate is a constant. Could someone explain how those result would happen?
