    Regression coefficient interpretation

    Hi, i have run a regression to estimate the impact of couple of variables like growth rate, company size or leverage on the profitability of a firm. I know that if e.g. the regression coefficient for growth is 0,5 a 1% increase in growth rate would yield a 0,5% increase in profitability if...

    Sign differences in coefficients arising from using ordinal vs continuous data

    I run a simple OLS regression: y=a +bx+.....+e, I obtain an estimate of b<0. Prior researchers running the a similar regression obtain an estimate of b>0: I'm trying to reconcile this difference. The only methodological difference driving our results is the following: In my study...

    SPSS Cox regression analysis

    Hi, I'm a student at university doing my dissertation project. I'm looking at what could independently predict readmission to hospital. We have done a cox regression analysis but the results seem to be the wrong way. It shows that a factor increases the likelihood of readmission but when...

    How do I interpret regression coefficients when there are log transformations?

    Hi, I'd like to know how to interpret with percentage the slope coefficients of a regressoin when I have: A- log(Y) ~ log(X) b- log(Y) ~ X c- Y ~ log(X) So far I found this web site, but I'm not sure it is accurate:

    panel regression vs cross-section

    Hi, I'm running the following regression: y=A+Bx+...+year_dummy for the years 2002-2005 and get that B is statistically significant. However, when I run separate regressions for each year, the significance disappears (for all years). I'm having a hard time interpreting the results - any...

    Interpretation of the regression coefficient of a proportion type IV

    If I want to use some proportion type independent variables in a logistic regression, then what will be the interpretation of the regression coefficients corresponding to those proportion type variables? Will that mean- "The change in log odds for per unit change in the proportions"? But what...

    Using regressions in monte carlo simulations

    Hey Guys, I'm building a valuation model with monte carlo and regression elements but could use a bit of help. The model breaks down the firm's revenue and costs by product. To estimate the cost of producing each product (cost per unit), I've regressed unit sales of each product against...
