Whites general heteroscedasticity test, Advanced Statistics

The Null Hypothesis - H0:  γ1 = γ2 = ...  =  0  i.e.  there is no heteroscedasticity in the model

The Alternative Hypothesis - H1:  at least one of the γi's are not equal to zero i.e. the squared residuals are related to one of the independent variables.

Regression Analysis: sqres versus totexp, income, ...

* sqnk is highly correlated with other X variables

* sqnk has been removed from the equation.

The regression equation is

sqres = 0.0178 - 0.000232 totexp + 0.000023 income + 0.000298 age - 0.00555 nk

MTB > # Since nrsq = 1519*0.034= 51.6460 > chi=22.360 we have hetero from white test# Also both B-P and White test seem to indicate that totexp is the culprit

Since nrsq = 51.6460 > 22.360 = , there is sufficient evidence to reject H0 which suggests that there is heteroscedasticity in the model from White's general heteroscedasticity test at the 5% significance level.  Both Breusch Pagan test and White's general heteroscedasticity test seem to indicate that totexp is the culprit as the T value is significant and the P-value is 0.000.
