There's no point of English at stake here. 

The help for -whitetst- explains that it is intended for use after -regress- or -cnsreg-. It makes no sense to try to use it after -tobit-. 

Looking at the others, -clad- (STB) also seems completely unrelated to -tobit-. 

The more important question is: If there is a standard test for heteroscedasticity after -tobit-, why didn't StataCorp provide it?

Sorry if I use the wrong word becaue I am not a native english speaker
but I do not how to explain. My question looks silly for somebody but
I have no strong background about using stata, I just start to use
Tobit model, so I have no idea about it. Maybe, I might have too many
variables. Thank you for Tony.
Sorry Nick, if you use inappropriate word to you.
