Interpreting the coefficients of my regression model

Postby george1660 » Sat Jan 31, 2015 3:53 pm

Hi all,

I am a student at Bournemouth University currently undertaking a research project into the pay-performance sensitivity in AIM companies. I want to investigate the impact of firm performance on total pay.

My dependent variable is total pay (inc cash + equity pay) and my independent variable is firm performance. Data is for one year, 2013.

Firm performance is measured in % e.g +10%, -13%. Total pay is measured to the nearest pound, e.g £761,376. However, both variables have been transformed via Log10 and were entered into the SPSS regression in their log form.

I have attached the coefficients table as an attachment below. The B values are Constant 5.903 and Firm Performance 0.451.

For suitable comparsion with prior literature, if possible, I would like to know the following:
-I want to find out what a 10% and 1% increase in firm performance would correspond to in % increase in total pay?
-As well as this as firm performance increases by 1 unit, by how many £s does total pay increase by?

I apologise in advance if I had not provided the relevant information and thank you for any help you could give me!
