Dear friends,

When I draft the econometric report, I come across a font problem of
reporting econometric results. As in most of journals, the coefficient
and its corresponding significance should be reported, together with
other indicators. While my colleagues are using t value or z value, I
prefer to p>|t| because it is more informative and readers are
informed at which level parameters can not be rejected. Though both of
these types can be converted between each other, which one is better
or more standard? We discussed this at lunch break and no agreement
yet.
