    $\begingroup$ There are various ways to compute a robust standard error. We can't tell you if you don't give us context. "Robust standard error" mentioned where, used for what? $\endgroup$ Jan 22, 2022 at 16:52

  • $\begingroup$ Are you referring to a particular "robust standard error"? e.g. are you talking about some kind of "heteroskedasticity"-robust standard error? $\endgroup$
