<> Well, this thread has produced three options for you to choose from, and you have heard all the pros and cons. Just to summarize: ************* sysuse auto, clear /*first option */ qui gen ia2 = head*length reg mpg head length ia2, beta /*second option */ qui{ egen shead = std(headroom) egen slength = std(length) egen smpg = std(mpg) replace ia2 = shead*slength egen sia2 = std(ia2) } reg smpg shead slength sia2 /*third option */ reg mpg shead slength sia2 ************* HTH Martin -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von lschoele@rumms.uni-mannheim.de Gesendet: Sonntag, 21. Juni 2009 17:33 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: Re: st: re: beta coefficients for interaction terms I am sorry, but I am getting kind of confused here. I am not a pro in running regressions with interaction terms, I am sorry that I have to ask so many questions. To get the beta coefficients I have to run the regression .reg smpg shead slength sia2 If I run the regression .reg mpg shead slength sia2 I get the coefficients, that are not standardized? Am I right?
