Yes, but I think the basic understanding or interpretation ofregression coefficients for continuous or binary variables is notaltered when a variable has been log transformed. It is true thatinteractions can be present or absent depending on whether or not avariable has been transformed, because interactions are scale dependent.-Dave On Dec 14, 2008, at 7:31 PM, Shehzad Ali wrote:Hi, Could someone please help me interpret the following:1.
