statsmodels.regression.linear_model.OLSResults.get_robustcov_results

OLSResults.get_robustcov_results(cov_type='HC1', use_t=None, **kwds)

create new results instance with robust covariance as default

Parameters:

cov_type : string

the type of robust sandwich estimator to use. see Notes below

use_t : bool

If true, then the t distribution is used for inference. If false, then the normal distribution is used.

kwds : depends on cov_type

Required or optional arguments for robust covariance calculation. see Notes below

Returns:

results : results instance

This method creates a new results instance with the requested robust covariance as the default covariance of the parameters. Inferential statistics like p-values and hypothesis tests will be based on this covariance matrix.

Notes

The following covariance types and required or optional arguments are currently available:

  • ‘HC0’, ‘HC1’, ‘HC2’, ‘HC3’ and no keyword arguments:

    heteroscedasticity robust covariance

  • ‘HAC’ and keywords

    • maxlag integer (required) : number of lags to use

    • kernel string (optional) : kernel, default is Bartlett

    • use_correction bool (optional) : If true, use small sample

      correction

  • ‘cluster’ and required keyword groups, integer group indicator

    • groups array_like, integer (required) :

      index of clusters or groups

    • use_correction bool (optional) :

      If True the sandwich covariance is calulated with a small sample correction. If False the the sandwich covariance is calulated without small sample correction.

    • df_correction bool (optional)

      If True (default), then the degrees of freedom for the inferential statistics and hypothesis tests, such as pvalues, f_pvalue, conf_int, and t_test and f_test, are based on the number of groups minus one instead of the total number of observations minus the number of explanatory variables. df_resid of the results instance is adjusted. If False, then df_resid of the results instance is not adjusted.

  • ‘hac-groupsum’ Driscoll and Kraay, heteroscedasticity and

    autocorrelation robust standard errors in panel data keywords

    • time array_like (required) : index of time periods

    • maxlag integer (required) : number of lags to use

    • kernel string (optional) : kernel, default is Bartlett

    • use_correction False or string in [‘hac’, ‘cluster’] (optional) :

      If False the the sandwich covariance is calulated without small sample correction. If use_correction = ‘cluster’ (default), then the same small sample correction as in the case of ‘covtype=’cluster’’ is used.

    • df_correction bool (optional)

      adjustment to df_resid, see cov_type ‘cluster’ above #TODO: we need more options here

  • ‘hac-panel’ heteroscedasticity and autocorrelation robust standard

    errors in panel data. The data needs to be sorted in this case, the time series for each panel unit or cluster need to be stacked. keywords

    • time array_like (required) : index of time periods

    • maxlag integer (required) : number of lags to use

    • kernel string (optional) : kernel, default is Bartlett

    • use_correction False or string in [‘hac’, ‘cluster’] (optional) :

      If False the the sandwich covariance is calulated without small sample correction.

    • df_correction bool (optional)

      adjustment to df_resid, see cov_type ‘cluster’ above #TODO: we need more options here

Reminder: use_correction in “nw-groupsum” and “nw-panel” is not bool, needs to be in [False, ‘hac’, ‘cluster’]

TODO: Currently there is no check for extra or misspelled keywords, except in the case of cov_type HCx
