First of all you need to include D as a covariate. The coeficient of lnvfdi is the effect of lnvfdi in developing countries The coefficient of lnvfdi*D is the difference in effect of lnvfdi in developing and developed countries The effect of lnvfdi in developed countries is thus the sum of the coefficients of lnvfdi and lnvfdi*D See, e.g.: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2005-02/msg00779.html Hope this helps, Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
