## Homosadastesity is also one of the assumption of

Linear Regression Model.
homo means equal and scedasticity means
spread or variance. Homoscedasticity thus refers
to as equal or same variances.
===> E(u
i
) = ; remains constant
while
i
varies

1. Due TO hetrosadastesity, variances of the
coefficients (
i
)are larger, and consequently,
their standard errors and confidence interval
are large, while t ratios are consequently small
and insignificant.
3) OLS estimators are no longer efficient.
Tests use for detection of Hetrosadastesity:
Park Test:
Run a usual regression, like:
lnY =
0
+
1
lnX
i
+
i

Obtain residuals e
i
and make them squared, run
regression of the following form:
Lne
2
i
=
0
+
1
lnX
i
+
i

If
1
happens to be statistically significant, it will
indicate the existence of the problems of
heteroscedasticity. Lets do the Park test for evaluating
our Job satisfaction and organizational justice case
for checking existence of heteroscadasticity problem.

Park Test: (Cont)
Convert data on all dependent and independent
variables JS, DJ,PJ, IJ, INJ and AEE into log using
TRANSFORM and COMPUTE VARIABLE commands
in SPSS; let the newly log-variables have new
names LJS, LDJ,LPJ, LIJ, LINJ and LAEE.

Park Test: (Cont)
After Converting data into log regress the model
as follows:
lnLJS =
0
+
1
lnDJ +

lnPJ +

lnIJ +

lnIN +

lnAEE +

Obtain residuals using additional SPSS commands:

Park Test: (Cont)
The command in previous slide will estimate
residuals and put those in the last column of
the data file under name RES_1(this residual
will be in logarithmic form as all the variables in
regression are in log from) . Make this variable
square (as we need Lne

), using TRANSFORM
and COMPUTE commands.

Result interpretation of Park Test:
All the coefficients (LDJ, LPJ, LIJ, LINJ & LAEE) are
statistically insignificant except LDJ , suggesting
no heterosedasticity problem.

Goldfeld-Quant Test:
The Goldfeld-Quant test suggests ordering or rank
observations according to the values of X
i
,
beginning with the lowest X
i
value. Then some
central observations are omitted in a way that
the remaining observations are divided into
two equal groups.

Goldfeld-Quant Test: (Cont)
These two data groups are used for running two
separate regressions, and residual sum of squares
1
2
) are
then used to compute Goldfeld-Quant F test,
namely:
2
/df
1
/df
If the F is found significant (F
-calculated
> F
-tabulated
) the
problem of heteroscedasticity is likely to exist.

Goldfeld-Quant Test: (Cont)
Lets run the stated test for Organizational justice and
Job satisfaction case. In Parks test indicated that log
of variable DJ was found the most collinear with the
log of the squared residuals; this suggested that we
arrange data in ascending order using DJ variable as
the base, and then omit central 14 observations,
which will leave 250 observation to be equally divided
in two parts of 125 observation each.
The SPSS command is: DATASORT CASESTake DJ
to the SORT-BY BOXASCENDING.

Goldfeld-Quant Test: (Cont)
Remove the 14 central observations, and save
data in two separate files, one having Group 1
data (the first 125 observations) and the second
having Group II data (having 125 later
observations).

Goldfeld-Quant Test: (Cont)
Then running the required two regressions gives
the following TWO ANOVA tables:

Showing Hetrosedastisity problem

1. If we know , then we use the weighted least
squares (WLS) estimation technique, i.e.,

Where
i
= standard deviation of the X
i
.
2. Log -transformation:

It reduces the heteroscedasticity.
