Description |
TESTHET Tests wether heteroskedasticity affects data. Need 'regstats' and 'chi2cdf' (Stat TB).
PVAL = TESTHET(RES, X, WHICHTEST, YHAT)
INPUTS:
- Res: residuals obtained by regressing Y on x1, x2 etc...(1) It can be a numeric 'n-by-1' vector or a 'n-by-p' matrix with 'p' residuals obtained from different regressions. The # of obs. is 'n'.
- X: predictors suspected of causing heteroskedasticity. Not necessarily all those in (1). Same format as Res.
- Whichtest: test chosen in format string.
a. Breush-Pagan, Koenker mod. --> -BPK
b. White --> -W
c. White, Wooldridge --> -Ws
[OPTIONAL]
- Yhat: only for '-Ws' test. Fitted values from (1). Same format as Res.
OUTPUT:
A '1-by-p' array with p-values.
EXAMPLE:
1. Regress Y on x1, x2:
--> regstats(Y, [x1 x2], 'linear', {'r','yhat'})
2. Test with -Ws:
--> TestHet(r,[x1, x2], '-Ws', yhat)

Any comments, suggestions and critics are truly welcome.
Plz let me know if you prefer a function which doesn't use the stats toolbox.
