I have read the Stata manual but I am still having trouble understanding how to interpret these results. I am looking to determine how each parameter affects the outcome given a 1-unit change.
The code I am using in Stata is as follows:
probit hhaffbyinvest /// femintmig femdommig maleintmig maledommig /// femeduc maleeduc lifecycl /// fmeduc members ratio_workers /// hmale /// commun1 commun2 /// if (fem1stmig >= 1991 | male1stmig >= 1991) & (femhomenow == 1 | malehomenow == 1) /// & country == 8 est store guat
hhaffbyinvest is whether a household has reported investing remittances. The line below that is the migration experiences of male and female heads of household, then education, lifecycle of household, size of household, etc...
I am running this in three countries. The results I get are as follows:
So, for example, how do I interpret 1.4275 for femintmig (a female head or spouse migrated internationally) with respect to the binary dependent variable (household invested remittances)? This is the first column in Guatemala.
