Tara-

1. In OLS, is the effect of expenditure in State 2 on *testscore* 11.16 units more than State 1? Or is it 11.16 - 0.0068 (-0.0068 is the coefficient on the interaction between state 2 and expenditure)

For state 1, you have this model: 97.34217 - 0.0024748*perstudent

Et cetera

2. In Fixed Effects, _Istate_2 and _Istate_3 were dropped. _IstaXpers~2 and _IstaXpers~3 were not. How would one interpret the coefficients on IstaXpers~2 and _IstaXpers~3 in the Fixed Effects model?

3. Does the coefficient on *perstudent* indicate that increasing expenditure across *all three states* is decreasing testscores by 0.0025 units? Or does *perstudent* refer to a specific state?

Thank you. I really appreciate your taking the time to help.

Do you know why scores go down as spending goes up? -- Kyle Hood Department of Economics Yale University New Haven, CT website: http://www.econ.yale.edu/~kkh25
