# Re: st: heteroskedasticity and serial correlation in binary choice models

```Hello Maarten and Cam,

Thanks for your replies. From the references you mentioned, I
understand that the issue dealt with is the comparison of coefficients
across groups.

I am estimating a model with logit using time series data and I have
only one continuous independent variable. Basically, I would like to
look at the correlation between my independent variable and the
probability of occurrence of 1s in the dependent variable.

I checked some textbooks and haven't seen any reference to serial
correlation in binary choice models.

Is serial correlation and/or heteroskedasticity problem here?  And
what can be done about it? I understand that robust standard errors
are available in logit and user written OGLM can deal with
heteroskedasticity, but what about serial correlation?

Thank you.
