1. ## Interpret regression dummies

Hi there

So I am having troubles understanding something.

I had to run a regression, taking category A as base (highest share)

The order of shares from high to low is:
Category A (base)
Category B
Category C
etc till Category F

The ouput gives me different orders, the highest negative coefficient are
Category D
Category F
Category B
Category C
Category E

Shouldnt it range From B to F? (or category F to B with B having the smallest coefficient?)

The only thing I can think of is that the sample isn't all equal for each category (e.g. Category B has N=4, Category C has N=13, Category D has N=4, Category E has N=13 and category F has N=10) IF its because of the sample, how can I best report this in good English?

What does highest share mean in this context?

Still not following, perhaps write out what you are modeling and what the variables specifically represent.
