  SAS/ETS Examples -- A Simple Regression Model with Correction of Heteroscedasticity
One of the classical assumptions of the ordinary regression model is that the disturbance variance is constant, or homogeneous, across observations.
If this assumption is violated, the errors are said to be "heteroscedastic." Heteroscedasticity often arises in the analysis of cross-sectional data.
If heteroscedasticity is present and a regression of spending on per capita income by state and its square is computed, the parameter estimates are still consistent but they are no longer efficient.

  FRONTIER ESTIMATION AND FIRM-SPECIFIC INEFFICIENCY MEASURES IN THE PRESENCE OF HETEROSCEDASTICITY Magazine: Journal of ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Heteroscedasticity is a specification error often associated with the estimation of cost functions, and the presence of heteroscedasticity is likely to affect these inefficiency measures.
To allow for heteroscedasticity in the frontier estimation, the model is parameterized in terms of beta, sigma[sub v], and sigma[sub w].
The heteroscedastic frontier parameter estimates are about evenly split between those that are larger than the OLS or regular frontier parameter estimates and those that are smaller.

We know that tests for heteroscedasticity are important because, in the presence of heteroscedasticity of error variances, least squares method gives inefficient parameter estimates and biased variance estimates.
The performance of this test for conditional heteroscedasticity is compared with three other tests; one of them is a variant of the Kamstra test (Kamstra (1993)); this last test is a neural network test for heteroscedasticity but with a different test statistics.
In a conditional heteroscedastic context, we are going to include past squared disturbance terms as explanatory variables (or input variables) in the network to capture dynamics.

In this case, the classic correction for heteroscedasticity is the HC0 estimator proposed by Huber (1967) and White (1980).
There are a number of tests for heteroscedasticity, so it seems natural to conduct a test, then use a correction if the test suggest heteroscedasticity.
The trouble with this is that the tests often fail to detect heteroscedasticity, leading you to neglect the correction when it is actually needed.

Heteroscedasticity is a common problem with cross-sectional data, in which unequal model variance is observed.
The consequence of ordinary least squares estimation with heterogeneously distributed error structure is inefficient parameter estimates of the regression equation.
For a heteroscedastic regression model, a consistent estimate of the variance-covariance matrix is obtained by approximating the heteroscedastic variances with the squared of estimated residuals from an ordinary least squares estimation.

 Multiple Regression Assumptions. ERIC Digest.
According to Berry and Feldman (1985), slight heteroscedasticity has little effect on significance tests; however, when heteroscedasticity is marked, it can lead to serious distortion of findings and seriously weaken the analysis, thus increasing the possibility of a Type I error.
Heteroscedasticity is indicated when the residuals are not evenly scattered around the line.
There are many forms heteroscedasticity can take, such as a bow-tie or fan shape.

 Estimation under Heteroscedasticity
In the errors-in-variables model all the components of a measurement vector are corrupted by noise.
When the structure of the model is polynomial, linearization of the estimation problem introduces data-dependent (heteroscedastic) noise.

The international scientific and standardization bodies recommend that the uncertainty of patients' results obtained in clinical laboratories should be known [2, 3]; the rationale for this recommendation is that full interpretation of the value of a quantity obtained by measurement requires also evaluation of the doubt attached to its value.
With regard to day-to-day imprecision, the phenomenon called heteroscedasticity should be taken into account: day-to-day metrological variance depends on the value of the measurand (the opposite phenomenon is called homoscedasticity).
In some cases of heteroscedasticity, in spite of variance differences with the measurand value, the coefficient of variation reminds constant; in these cases, the calculation of the variance due to day-to day imprecision is easy to carry out (knowing the measured value and the constant coefficient of variation).

 Correcting the standard errors of regression slopes for heteroscedasticity
To understand these methods, the most important point to know is that the patterns of heteroscedasticity that most distort statistical inference are not the most common or obvious cases.
In a problem with 8 regressors (predictors), suppose we're thinking of one of the 8 as the independent variable of interest, and are thinking of the other 7 regressors as covariates which are in the regression in order to control them statistically.
Because of this, the simple-regression method for controlling heteroscedasticity can be extended to multiple regression by computing X.C and Y.C, then deleting from the sample the cases closest to the mean on X.C. (That mean is always exactly 0, since residuals always have a mean of 0.) Then proceed as described above.

 St. Louis Fed: WP 1998-011A "Conditional Heteroskedasticity in Qualitative Response Models of Time Series:A Gibbs ...
Previous time series applications of qualitative response models have ignored features of the data, such as conditional heteroscedasticity, that are routinely addressed in time-series econometrics of financial data.
This article addresses this issue by adding Markov-switching heteroscedasticity to a dynamic ordered probit model of discrete changes in the bank prime lending rate and estimating via the Gibbs sampler.
In addition, the extension to regime-switching parameters and conditional heteroscedasticity is easy to implement under Gibbs sampling.

 The Statistical Distribution Of Daily Exchange Rate Price Changes: Dependent Vs Independent Models
In the cases where there is significant first-order heteroscedasticity in the data set, the GARCH models are superior only 50% of the time.
Results indicate that independence should not be overlooked, and future research should not focus on the search for the perfect GARCH model, but attempt to develop models that incorporate the pronounced volatility clustering found in exchange rate price series and the independent behavior that exists in the data.
Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscedastic in the Mean (GARCH-M) In the GARCH-M model the conditional mean is a function of the conditional variance equation.

if there is heteroscedasticity look first for a reasonable transformation that might stabilize the variances of the errors, but without introducing problems of interpretation or upsetting the functional relationship of Y with the independent variables; if such a transformation is found it is a desirable solution

We find strong evidence of heteroscedasticity in daily, weekly and monthly returns.
The results with weekly and daily data are not as drastic -- while strong evidence of the regime shift and of seasonality is found in daily and weekly data, even after controlling for these, returns are still ARCH, and still exhibit a fair degree of persistence.
