# Regression with percentage dependent, log and linear independent

I have read a lot of questions and answers but I am still confused for my case. My dependent variable (employment growth) is measured : $$\frac{((number\ of\ employees \ in \ year\ t) - (number \ of \ employees \ in \ year \ t-1))}{[((number \ of \ employees \ in \ year \ t) + (number \ of \ employees \ in \ year \ t-1))/2]}*100$$ It is defined in percentage (%). It can takes values from -100 to 100 (continuous). 1)I have an independent in log value. 2) I have an independent - indicator which can take values from 0 to 50 (continuous). Let's say I have this: $$eg = 80 + 1.48 \ log(x) + 6.044 \ Indicator + \epsilon$$ How I interpret coefficient for each independent... Thanks in advance!

• What about it confuses you? Have you taken a course in regression? Commented Mar 18, 2018 at 13:38
• So, my point is : 1) For a 1% increase in x , we expect a 1.48 % increase in eg. 2) For a 1-unit increase in indicator, we expect a 6.044 increase in eg. Am I right ? The thing is that eg is already defined in percentage (%) , so I think there is something wrong with my thoughts... Commented Mar 18, 2018 at 13:47
