Description

This volume covers the commonly ignored topic of heteroskedasticity (unequal error variances) in regression analyses and provides a practical guide for how to proceed in terms of testing and correction. Emphasizing how to apply diagnostic tests and corrections for heteroskedasticity in actual data analyses, the book offers three approaches for dealing with heteroskedasticity: variance-stabilizing transformations of the dependent variable; calculating robust standard errors, or heteroskedasticity-consistent standard errors; generalized least squares estimation coefficients and standard errors. The detection and correction of heteroskedasticity is illustrated with three examples that vary in terms of sample size and the types of units analyzed (individuals, households, U.S. states).

Author Biography

Robert Kaufman (PhD University of Wisconsin, 1981) is professor of sociology and the Chair of the Department of Sociology at Temple University. His substantive research focuses on economic structure and labor market inequality, especially with respect to race, ethnicity, and gender. He has also explored other realms of race-ethnic inequality, including research on wealth, home equity, residential segregation, traffic stops and treatment by police, and media portrayals of crime. More abstract statistical issues motivate some of his current work on evaluating different methods for correcting for heteroskedasticity using Monte Carlo simulations. Dr. Kaufman has published papers on quantitative methods in American Sociological Review, American Journal of Sociology, Sociological Methodology, Sociological Methods and Research, and Social Science Quarterly. He served on the editorial board of Sociological Methods and Research for 15 years and has taught graduate-level statistics courses nearly every year for the past 30 years.
