Dear all,

  I have a question regarding how to interpret squared term:

   Outcome var: addict to drug

  variable                exp(beta)
  Year                      1.05***
  Year squared     0.98***

How shall I interpret the year effect (the year variable and the year squared variable)? Any suggestions would be appreciated very much.
