The breusch-pagan test, Advanced Statistics

The Null Hypothesis - H0:  There is no heteroscedasticity i.e. β1 = 0

The Alternative Hypothesis - H1:  There is heteroscedasticity i.e. β1 0

Reject H0 if Q = ESS/2 > 1640_Tests for Heteroscedasticity.png

MTB > let k2=sum(c20)/1519

MTB > let c22 = c20/k2

C20 = sqres

C22 = gt

Regression Analysis: gt versus income, totexp, age, nk

The regression equation is

gt = 1.15 + 0.000130 income - 0.00135 totexp + 0.00095 age - 0.0424 nk

MTB > # since Q=ESS/2 = 2.68200 < chi = 5.99 we have no hetero from Breusch-Pagan Test

Since Q = 2.68200 < 5.99 = 1640_Tests for Heteroscedasticity.png , there is sufficient evidence to accept H0 which suggests that there is no heteroscedasticity from the Breusch-Pagan test at 5% significance level which means that one or more slopes are zero.
