Dear Scott: This is very helpful. Thank you! Just want to clarify. About the output you had, was that based mean-centered mpg or not? Because if I don't center my continuous variable, I would have some s.e. of above 4 while if I center it first before running the regression, all s.e. were below 1. Does that make a difference? Thanks again!

Scott Long's -spostado- package). For example: . sysuse auto (1978 Automobile Data) . gen foreXmpg = foreign*mpg . poisson rep mpg foreign foreXmpg Iteration 0: log likelihood = -112.63814 Iteration 1: log likelihood = -112.63814 Poisson regression Number of obs = 69 LR chi2(3) = 7.08 Prob > chi2 = 0.0694 Log likelihood = -112.63814 Pseudo R2 = 0.0305 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- rep78 | Coef.
