Dear Statalisters

I am using a cross-section data. I am looking at the
impact of "x" on "Y", runing an OLS. I ran something
like

.regress Y x1, x2, x3

Some of my coefficients are very large. For example,
648.
I cannot log the dependent variable, since some of the
some workplaces had minus "Y".

I guess I could divide "Y" by 1000. But I not certain
if this would be correct.
 
I would be grateful, if anyone would let me know, how
I could scale these coefficients so that they are a
lot smaller. 


Thank you
