Score Test for Non-Constant Error Variance
Computes a score test of the hypothesis of constant error variance against the alternative that the error variance changes with the level of the response (fitted values), or with a linear combination of predictors.
# S3 method for lm ncvTest(model, var.formula, ...)
# S3 method for glm ncvTest(model, ...) # to report an error
a weighted or unweighted linear model, produced by
a one-sided formula for the error variance; if omitted, the error variance depends on the fitted values.
arguments passed down to methods functions; not currently used.
This test is often called the Breusch-Pagan test; it was independently suggested with some extension by Cook and Weisberg (1983).
ncvTest.glm is a dummy function to generate an error when a
model is used.
The function returns a
chisqTest object, which is usually just printed.
