Gender, disability status, reading IEP goals, and passage level (either middle or high school) were entered into the model uncentered as they were dichotomous or nominal variables.
Table I reports uncentered descriptive statistics and correlations for the variables.
If an uncentered needle makes you antsy, just keep the DME where it should be or use an RMI, if available.
The interpretation of the marginal effects changes now compared to the case where data are uncentered. Specifically, expression (3) measures the marginal impact of a one-unit change in inequality when the physical capital-human capital stock ratio is at its mean, while the respective coefficient using uncentered data would measure the impact of a one-unit change in inequality when the above ratio is zero, which does not exist in the data.
When the main effects and interaction terms were uncentered, there were no significant findings and VIFs ranged from 50 to 781, which indicates that multicollinearity was present.
In 1997, Kinnunen [1] first studied the Sobolev regularity of the usual centered Hardy-Littlewood maximal function M and showed that M is bounded on the first-order Sobolev spaces [W.sup.1,p]([R.sup.d]) for all 1 < p [less than or equal to] [infinity] (the same conclusion also holds for the uncentered version M by a simple modification of Kinnunen's arguments or [2, Theorem 1]).
Considering the uncentered [R.sup.2] would restrict comparability, since it is commonly much larger than the centered [R.sup.2] (see Wooldridge, 2008).
These vectors allow firms to be located in a multi-dimensional technological space where technological proximity between firms is determined as the uncentered correlation coefficient between the corresponding technology vectors:
