** Interaction Terms in STATA**. Tommie Thompson: Georgetown MPP 2018. In regression analysis, it is often useful to include an interaction term between different variables. For instance, when testing how education and race affect wage, we might want to know if educating minorities leads to a better wage boost than educating Caucasians Edit: just to explain a little about the #, if you add var1#var2 in a regression, stata will only add the interaction term. The neat trick is that when you instead add var1##var2, stata will include the two variables as well as their interaction. That's just a side note but it might be useful later on My question concerns the proper use of # versus ## in Stata for interacting categorical and dependent variables. Here is the example I have in mind. To understand the marginal effect of x on y I ran an experiment with three treatments (A, B, C) on two types of subjects (M, F).To understand the pooled marginal effect (and supposing I satisfy all OLS criteria) I can run reg y x

- Graphing ANOVA Interaction Effects. The easiest way to see interaction effects with ANOVAs is to graph them. If you are working with a one-, two- or three-way interaction, you can use the user-created command anovaplot otherwise (or instead) you can use Stata's existing commands (though this may be a bit more complex). The instructions below will use anovaplot and then Stata's existing commands
- The standardized interaction term should be the standardized version of the product of the two original variables, not the product of the two standardized variables. Here is an example using the sample data set auto in Stata

B1 is the effect of X1 on Y when X2 = 0. Similarly, B2 is the effect of X2 on Y when X1 = 0. For example, when X2 = 0, we get α β ε α β β β ε α β.

3.7.3.1 Computing interactions with anova 3.7.3.2 Computing interactions with anova 3.7.4 Using Anov * The significant interaction term indicates that there is a moderating effect to explore graphically! As you may or may not know, the above analysis can be run using either the GLM menu dialog or the regression dialog in SPSS*. A key difference between the two is that you'll need to manually create the interaction term using the regression method. A belated followup to Maarten's lengthy post on this: I notice that, unlike -mfx-, the new -margins- command does not even report marginal effects for interaction terms, e.g. sysuse auto logit foreign price mpg c.mpg#c.price, nolog margins, dydx(*) This makes sense to me: the interaction term can't change unless one of its component terms changes For example, if you wanted to calculate adjusted pfp at different levels of debt1 the -margins- command knows that it needs to vary debt1 in the interaction term. When you create an interaction term manually (as you've correctly done), Stata doesn't know that that's what you've done so for any postestimation command you need to spell it out When a statistical equation incorporates a multiplicative term in an attempt to model interaction effects, the statistical significance of the lower-order coefficients is largely useless for the typical purposes of hypothesis testing

- In a model in which there is a second order term, the result is less transparent. Then, the desired effect is that in (5a).

I keep referring to this issue in manuscript reviews, so I thought it worth a post. If you include an interaction term in a model, the statistical significance of the main effects and the interaction term tells you nothing about the interactive effect. This seems contrary to your intuition. Turns out the interactive effect ma If you do want the interaction term on the odds ratio scale, then just exponentiate the interaction coefficient to get a ratio. In this example, we get a ratio of 0.97 The purpose of this paper is to explain the use of interaction terms in non-linear models.

1. You should generally create the interaction term dynamically using the # notation. See -help varlist-. It is possible that you didn't create your interaction variable properly, or that Stata is dropping one or more terms due to collinearity because it doesn't realise that you want to model the interaction 2 coefplot looks for variables corresponding to the collected coefficient names and then uses their variable labels for the categorical axis. For factor variables, coefplot additionally takes value labels into account (the rule is to print the value label, if a value label is defined, and otherwise print the variable label or name along with. In this interaction plot, the lines are not parallel. This interaction effect indicates that the relationship between metal type and strength depends on the value of sinter time.

The interaction term is statistically significant (p = 0.000), and R 2 is much bigger with the interaction term than without it (0.99 versus 0.80). Therefore, we conclude for this problem that the interaction term contributes in a meaningful way to the predictive ability of the regression equation Interaction terms in a regression An interaction term is where we construct a new explanatory variable from 2 or more underlying variables For instance we could multiply two variables together, say Price and Income The regression equation we would estimate would then be Q D = β 0 + β 1 P + β 2 Y + β 3 PY We do this if we think that the e.

Here is the Stata output for our current example, where we test to see if the effect of Job Experience is. The three-way interaction term should be significant in the regression equation in order for the interaction to be interpretable. If you wish to use the Dawson & Richter (2006) test for differences between slopes, you should request the coefficient covariance matrix as part of the regression output Likewise, we can look at the table above to form the comparisons needed to obtain the simple effects of mealcat when yr_rnd is 1.

However, the effect of collcat when mealcat was 3 might not be significant if we used a post hoc criteria for evaluating its significance. The postgr command can be used to simplify the process of computing adjusted means (i.e. predicted values when holding other variables constant). Let’s assume that you have run the same regression as shown above

** In our longitudinal model, we also look at an interaction term (continuous*continuous) as a predictor**. We plotted the interaction in Mplus by using -2 SD, the mean, and +2 SD of one of the predictors in the interaction term, which obviously produces a plot with 3 lines Interaction are the funny interesting part of ecology, the most fun during data analysis is when you try to understand and to derive explanations from the estimated coefficients of your model.

Modeling and Interpreting Interactions in Multiple Regression Donald F. Burrill The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education Toronto, Ontario Canada A method of constructing interactions in multiple regression models is described which produces interaction variables that are uncorrelated with their component variables an Regression analysis with interaction term - Stata output. First, we see that the coefficient of the statistical interaction term is statistically significant at the 0.05 level. This means that that the interaction effect should not be ignored. How should it be interpreted? The coefficient of the interaction term is the difference in the effect.

4. Add the interaction effect to the previous model (block 2) and check for a significant R2 change as well as a significant effect by the new interaction term. If both are significant, then moderation is occurring. If the predictor and moderator are not significant with the interaction term added, then complete moderation has occurred In **Stata** use the command regress, type: regress [dependent variable] [independent variable(s)] regress y x. In a multivariate setting we type: regress y x1 x2 x3 Before running a regression it is recommended to have a clear idea of what you are trying to estimate (i.e. which are your outcome and predictor variables) Prefixing trust and conformity with c. instructs Stata to treat them as continuous variables. Inserting ## between the variables tells Stata to include both variables and an interaction between them when estimating the model. Press Enter to run the analysis. Next, run the models using the centered independent variables of the main terms, X 1X 2, as the \interaction term. This brings us to our rst simple observations: 1. In a regression with interaction terms, the main terms should always be included. Otherwise, the interaction e ect may be signi cant due to left-out variable bias.

- The empirical study shows that the corrected interaction effect in an ordered logit or probit model is substantially different from the incorrect interaction effect produced by the margins command in Stata. Based on the correct formulas, this report verifies that the interaction effect is not the same as the marginal effect of the interaction term
- Interactions in Logistic Regression I For linear regression, with predictors X 1 and X 2 we saw that an interaction model is a model where the interpretation of the effect of X 1 depends on the value of X 2 and vice versa.

- We can reparameterise the model so that Stata gives us the estimated effects of sex for each level of subite. We get the same estimates (and confidence intervals) as with lincom but without the extra step. The trick is to specify the interaction term (with a single hash) and the main effect of the modifier (subsite). Note that we are fitting.
- interpret lower-order interaction-term coeﬃcients as if they were ordinary coeﬃcients in a strictly additive model. Such an interpretation is erroneous. If β 1 is statistically signiﬁcant, it is only reasonable to conclude that H 1: β 1 6= 0 cannot be rejected when X 2 = 0. The hypothesis may or may not be supported at other levels of X 2

Without an interaction term, the mean value for Females on Med B would have been α+β 1 +β 2. This implies a simple additive model, as we add the eﬀect of beng female to the eﬀect of being on med B. However, with the interaction term as detailed above, the mean value for Females on Med B is α + β 1 + β 2 + β 3, implying that over an Right, but to give a statement like You need 16 times the sample size to estimate an interaction than to estimate a main effect, you need to add in the assumption that the ratio of interaction effect over sigma approaches 0 (assuming you're looking at a Gaussian response variable)which is a pretty depressing assumption

- In an ANOVA, adding interaction terms still leaves the main effects as main effects. That is, as long as the data are balanced, the main effects and the interactions are independent. The main effect is still telling you if there is an overall effect of that variable after accounting for other variables in the model

Linear Regression Assumptions • Assumption 1: Normal Distribution - The dependent variable is normally distributed - The errors of regression equation are normally distributed • Assumption 2: Homoscedasticity - The variance around the regression line is the same for all values of the predictor variable (X Let’s investigate this interaction further by looking at the simple effects of collcat at each level of mealcat. I did not need to create dummy variables, interaction terms, or polynomials. As we will see below, convenience is not the only reason to use factor-variable notation. Factor-variable notation allows Stata to identify interactions and to distinguish between discrete and continuous variables to obtain correct marginal effects In regression and ANOVA, an interaction occurs when the effect of one independent variable on the dependent variable is different at different levels of another independent variable. When one or both of the independent variables is categorical, then two common strategies for dealing with interactions are stratifying and adding an interaction term The two authors hold the necessary Stata code on their homepage.

The interaction term is then difference between what you expected from the two individual differences and the result. In this case its a negative number, -43.66. Another way to see this is to imagine we are decomposing the difference between f(x1,x2) and f(x2,y2)

You may wonder why we have gone to the effort of using xi3 for creating and testing these effects instead of just using dummy coding like we would get with the xi command. Let’s compare how to get simple effects using the xi3 command via effect coding to how we would get simple effects using xi with dummy coding. We hope to show that it is much easier to use effect coding via xi3 and that the interpretation of the coefficients is much more intuitive. Finding Interactions. The concept of an interaction can be a difficult one for students new to the field of psychology research, yet interactions are an often-occurring and important aspect of behavioral science. The following lesson will introduce the concept of a statistical interaction, provide examples of interactions, and show you how to. In the second model the interaction term between age and market penetration is negative but not statistically significant. Again, the interaction effect varies widely, and is positive for many observations (see Fig. 2A).Even though the interaction term is itself not statistically significant, the interaction effect is significant for most observations (see Fig. 2B) The purpose of this paper is to explain the use of interaction terms in nonlinear models. term agefem improve the goodness of fit of the model can be answered simply with a z-test on the coefficient of the interaction term in a logit model. The Stata 11 syntax uses c. to indicate a continuous variable, i. to indicate a dummy variable.

Factor Variables and Marginal Effects in Stata 11 Christopher F Baum Boston College and DIW Berlin January 2010 Using factor variables Interaction effects Interaction effects taking account of the squared term as well, as Stata understands the mathematics of the speciﬁcation in this explicit form XZ is the interaction term calculated as X multiplied by Z, b 0 is the intercept, b 1 is the effect of X on Y, b 2 is the effect of Z on Y, and b 3 is the effect of XZ on Y. To understand how the interaction term XZ tests for a moderated relationship, consider Equation 1 11 LOGISTIC REGRESSION - INTERPRETING PARAMETERS outcome does not vary; remember: 0 = negative outcome, all other nonmissing values = positive outcome This data set uses 0 and 1 codes for the live variable; 0 and -100 would work, but not 1 and 2. Let's look at both regression estimates and direct estimates of unadjusted odds ratios from Stata

The focus on multiplicative interaction is likely due to the statistical models which are used in such analyses (e.g. logistic regression) and the fact that the models employed immediately give interactions (and confidence intervals) on a multiplicative scale In general, if interaction are interest it is probably good to repor Interactions can get yet more complicated. Two continuous variables can interact. Three variables can interact. You can have multiple two-way interactions. And so on. Even though software makes it easy to fit lots of interactions, Kutner, et al. (2005) suggest keeping two things in mind when fitting models with interactions First, to safeguard against multiple testing, we test if the whole set of interaction terms is significant or not using extra sum of squares F test: m01 <- lm(y ~ x + group) m02 <- lm(y ~ x + group + x:group) anova(m01, m02) If this test is significant, then at least one of the interaction terms in the model is significant

REGRESSION LINES IN STATA THOMAS ELLIOTT 1. Introduction to Regression variable to vary for the categories of the other variables by including an interaction term (see interaction handout). Including an interacting term between sex and home o ce will reproduce the cell averages accurately Figure 2: Estimated power for the interaction term in a logistic regression model The table and graph above indicate that 80% power is achieved with four combinations of sample size and effect size. Given our assumptions, we estimate that we will have at least 80% power to detect an odds ratio of 1.04 for sample sizes of 600, 800, and 1000
