<> Lisa said but it is important for my paper to show the value of the intercept, and I get different values if I use either the standardized or the not standardized dependent variable. If I have the null hypothesis that is is equal to zero, do I have to use the standardized or not standardized dependent variable? And coming back to my original question: Why do I have to standardize the dependent variable?
