I was reading in the literature that in order to compare linear regression results with independent variables & categorical (variables), it is recommended to standardize the coefficients to a zero mean.
I am trying to do linear regression where Y in my model comprises birth rate, X1 the monthly temperature, and 11 dummy variables representing Jan-Nov. While running it in Microsoft Excel, I am not sure whether the coefficient values are standardized or not. Is there a way to check it and is it possible to normalize coeff. to a zero mean in Excel?
