heteroscedasticity robust versions are available in most software
Also called White/Eicker standard errors. They involve the squared
residuals from the regression and from a regression of xj on all other
explanatory variables. Lecture 7 (heteroscedasticity) EMET2007/6007 24 th April 2013 32 / 34 Example: Hourly wage equation \

[ Heteroscedasticity robust standard errors (in square brackest ) may be
larger or smaller than their nonrobust counterparts. The di¤erences are
often small in practice.
