Differences between Breusch Pagan and White test for equal variance?

I need some clarification on what are the differences between the BP and White test when testing for equal variance. I have a few questions about this. I don’t fully understand what it means that the ...

Is it valid to perform a stationarity test on a single frequency of a time-frequency spectrum?

Am I violating any assumptions if I perform a test such as the KPSS test on a single frequency band of a time-frequency spectrum?

Trying to use the white test in r

I am doing a regression on the influence on marketing spending. I have already tested for heteroskedasticity with the Breusch-Pagan Test and found that the test came out positive. Based on the ...

White-Test: Use F-Statistic or LM-statistic?

to interpret the White-Test, it is recommended to use the LM-statistic = N*R-squared of the auxiliary regression which follows a Chi-squared distribution with df = number of restrictions. But I ...

Is there heteroskedasticity or not?

I carried out White's test for a particular model to check for heteroskedasticity. I got the following results for White's test (details shown below). AS it can be seen the p-value (0.299) isn't that ...

Robust standard errors (White) under homoscedasticity

Robust standard errors (White standard errors) are given by: $$\hat{V}(b)=(\sum_{i=1}^N x_ix_i')^{-1}(\sum_{i=1}^N e_i^2x_ix_i')(\sum_{i=1}^N x_ix_i')^{-1}$$ This helps us to estimate a asymptotic ...

Heteroskedasticity tests: heavy-tailedness of squared estimated errors

I have a time series model and obtain the following distribution of estimated errors: I suspect that the errors are heteroscedastic in the sense that their variance depends on the level of one or ...

Breusch Pagan and White test always 0

I'm working on a machine learning algorithm and trying to evaluate the model based on a guide online. No matter how I change the features of the model, the results of both tests are always 0. Is there ...

White test for heteroscedasticity of simple linear regression in R [duplicate]

The question is straightforward: How to implement White test (a test for heteroscedasticity) for a simple linear regression model (lm object) in R? I have tried "whites.htest(var.model)", however, ...

How to use White-test to check if the heteroscedasticity has been effectively dealt with by a WLS?

Consider an OLS model with $n$ observations and $p$ explanatory variables (including an intercept term) $$y=X\beta + \epsilon$$ We may use a White test to (approximately) check for the presence of ...

White noise test taking into account homoscedasticity

I try to test a time series for white noise. The ultimate goal is to show that scaling volatility from daily to longer time periods by the square-root of time rule is justified. Fore white noise I ...

Is there a way to calculate R-squared in OLS without computing the coefficients?

The background of my question is that for e.g. the White heteroskedasticity test or the Breusch-Godfrey (LM) autocorrelation test, we are generally only interested in the R-squared of the "auxiliary" ...

White test with large model and few samples impossible?

I have a linear model with 12 regressors and sample size 42, which I want to test for heteroscedasticity. Hence, I applied a white test in the following way regress $y=X\beta + e$ regress residuals $\...
