Testing For Heteroscedasticity (The Reg Procedure): Ifyou suspect heteroscedasticity, get the "nice", i.e., the consistent, estimators ofthe standard errors ofthe regression coefficients. The ACOV option is the answer. This page (specifically, equation 16) is revisited because it provides justification for what is done on SAS p. 1431. Kennedy's blurb about White along with BM's "long hand" calculation ofconsistent standard errors. Compare these to the ACOV output.
