Thanks for your help. Shehzad On Dec 15 2008, René Geppert wrote:

In an all linear specification, regression coefficients are usuallyinterpreted as marginal effects.Accordingly, in a log-log-specification, regression coefficients can bethought of elasticities.And for a lin-log-model, hence, the coefficient represent something likesemi-elasticities.-René David Airey schrieb: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.
