Maarten, thanks a lot for the quick reply. I agree to your words but I was told that this is it so I thought of clarifying myself. the estimated model includes log of sector gdp (dependent variable) log of credit allocated (independent variable) and I have used Panel cointegration technique. Please let me know if more information is required Regards Prakash On Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 4:37 PM, Maarten Buis <maartenlbuis@gmail.com> wrote: > On Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 11:54 AM, Prakash Singh wrote: >> Suppose I run regression for two different time period for same set of >> variables and get 0.13 and .34 (both statistically significant) as >> estimated coefficient of a variable.
