In order to verify that the coefficients of the

quantile regression model ([[beta].sub.0]([tau]) and [[beta].sub.1]([tau]) differ between the equations adjusted for the three

quantiles ([tau] = 0.2, 0.5, 0.8) the confidence intervals for the 3 models were obtained.

The estimates across

quantiles decreased for individuals with multiple disabilities from 22.6% at 10th

quantile to 9.7% at 90th

quantile.

Results over control variables related to both recipient-countries and donorcountries are broadly in line with those reported in Table 1 and interpreted above, with the exception here that public debt in donor-countries appear to be alternatively negative and significant, positive and significant, and statistically non-significant, depending on the

quantiles.

property liability insurers was collected to examine the determinants of leverage in the lower and higher

quantiles. The results of the 2SQR method show that the estimated coefficients for some explanatory variables (e.g., business concentration index and marketing channel) have a different sign for the lower and higher

quantiles.

Moreover, this section discusses focus on the influence of sentiment and investor structure on the basis at different

quantiles. The basis is more likely to be influenced by the interaction between investor sentiment and structure.

where Q1 and Q3 are the first and the third

The black triangle marks the estimated median incubation period for all Zika virus disease cases; the white triangle marks the estimated 95th

quantile. The top panel shows the fitted Weibull density function; the blue line represents the distribution for all Zika virus disease cases; and the red line represents only those with confirmed Zika virus disease.

Accuracy of estimated

quantiles: Results of statistical analysis were inherently uncertain, and to make the results useful certain criteria for measuring the extent of uncertainty should be used.

Machado and Mata (2001) provided evidence of increasing returns to schooling over the period 1982-1994 for Portugal, claiming that education is more valued for highly paid jobs because the impact of education at the tails of the distribution was distinct, the return at the 90th

quantile increased by 3 percent, and the returns at the low

quantiles decreased by 1.5 percent.
