You first need to define what you mean with robust before we can
answer that quesiton. This may sound silly, but within statistics the
term robust has many different meanings. The term "robust" is togehter
with "fixed effects" probably the most unfortunate example within
statistics where the same word is used for many different things,
leading to hopeless cases of miscommunication.

Having said that, Yuval has given you the same reference twice now, so
it would not be difficult to guess what his answer will be third time
