i2]], the vector of estimative for specific random

regression coefficients for animal (i), and [Z'.

Therefore, instead of the global model, we used the local regression model which allows the

regression coefficients to vary over the spatial domain.

When modeled without weights, subpopulations selected via complex sample selection methods may exert unequal influence, resulting in

regression coefficients that usually do not accurately represent the population of interest (Deaton 1997; Lee and Forthofer 2006; Pfefferman 1993).

For the interaction variable combining heating degree-days and wind speed interaction, its

regression coefficient was negative 0.

b)

Regression coefficients, z-scores and p-values from separate Poisson regression models for each crowd factor, adjusted for team ability, season, and stage of competition.

A Newton's method minimization routine was used to find the

regression coefficients.

The

regression coefficients predict that for every 10-fold increase in lifetime distance from the farm a boy's height and weight increased by 1.

The level of contraceptive discontinuation relevant to unmet need in Sub-Saharan Africa was significantly higher than in other regions, as indicated by the

regression coefficient of 6.

The size of population (lnpop) shows a negative impact on the business entry rate as suggested by Eurostat-OECD (2008: 10-11), but the

regression coefficient does not appear to be statistically significant.

The standard deviation and 95% credible interval of each

regression coefficient obtained through 5,000 times burns with 2 separate chains.

When urinary flow rate was included in regression analyses with U-Cd as the dependent variable and protein excretion (U-Alb or U-A1M) as independent variables, overall mean

regression coefficients for urinary flow rate were significantly > 0 for U-Cd excretion and SG-adjusted U-Cd concentration, but not for U-Crea-adjusted U-Cd concentration (Table 3).

Table 3 shows the

regression coefficients for the CBO gap specification.
