I'm with Tony here in the bemused corner of the stand. 

Quite what would the test be? Can you point to literature on an appropriate test? Even the idea of a residual seems problematic for a tobit model. 

Also, I am down as an author of -whitetst- (STB/SSC): the help says explicitly "-whitetst- is for use after -regress- or -cnsreg-", so invoking it is pointless and comment that it "does not work" is inappropriate. 


Lachenbruch, Peter [Tony] 

A couple of comments:
1.   Since Tobit seems to be working with truncated normals, doesn't this guarantee unequal variance?
2.   Can you interpret a regression model with 35 predictors?  I can't even in multiple regression.

        I need to test for Heteroskedasticity after I run Tobit model,
do anyone know about stata command to test for heteroskedaticity for
tobit model? I tried whitetst, hettest, and clad but they did not work
after running Tobit.

For example: I ran this regression below

tobit  y x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x6 x7 x8 x9 x10 x11....x35 [pweight], ll(0)
last estimates not found

Therefore, I am not sure I use the right command to test for
Heteroskedasticity or not. Thank you so much.
