This is one possible way of interpreting such a model. An alternative way is discussed in: Roger Newson (2003) "Stata Tip 1: The eform() option with regress" The Stata Journal, 3(4): 445. http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=st0054 Both interpretations are correct, they are just different ways of looking at the same model.
