Hi statalisters,

I have a Panel Data model where the dependent variable is the growth
rate of industrial Output (dln Y), whereas the dependent variable is the
real exchange rate in logs(ln RER). What I try to analyze is whether a
depreciated exchange rate has a positive or negative effect on
industrial output growth.

My specific question is about how to correctly interpret the estimated
effect, given that the dependent variable is on log differences, while
the independent is in logs.  In this case, an increase in the RER imply a currency aprecciation (Foreign
currency/Local Currency).

The beta coeficients associated to the Ln RER is = -0.486

I´ll apreciate any comment.
