White''s 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.

Reject H0 if nR2   >   2094_Tests for Heteroscedasticity.png

Regression Analysis: sqresi versus totexp, age, ...

* sqnk is highly correlated with other X variables

* sqnk has been removed from the equation.

 

The regression equation is

sqresi = 0.00086 - 0.000117 totexp + 0.000765 age + 0.00007 nk

         + 0.000000 sqtotexp - 0.000009 sqage + 0.000000 totexpage

         + 0.000026 totexpnk - 0.000077 agenk

Since nrsq = (1502*0.012) 18.024 > 15.5073 = 2094_Tests for Heteroscedasticity.png, 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.
