When you estimate a model on panel data in gretl you have the
option of two robust estimators of the covariance matrix
-- Arellano and Beck-Katz -- both of which are "clustered" on the
panel unit/group. See chapter 14 of the Gretl User's Guide for
But at present gretl doesn't support "clustered robust" estimation
outside of the case of panel data.
