Table 4 Results of regression for advertising time or space

From: Enhancing the comparability of costing methods: cross-country variability in the prices of non-traded inputs to health programmes

Number of observations = 214
Adjusted r2 = 0.6116 F statistic = 56.90 P of F statistic < 0.0001
Variable Coefficient SE (Robust)* T (Robust)* P (Robust)*
ln GDP per capita -0.592 0.0967 (0.1310) -6012 (-4.52) 0.000 (0.000)
ln of population in service area 0. 425 0.0461 (0.0482) 9.20 (8.81) 0.000 (0.000)
Dummy if costs are for TV 2.215 0.2559 (0.2705) 8.66 (8.19) 0.000 (0.000)
Dummy if costs are for newspaper 2.055 0.2286 (0.2093) 8.99 (9.82) 0.000 (0.000)
Dummy for Eastern Europe -8.668 4.1304 (4.1141) -2.10 (-2.11) 0.037 (0.039)
Dummy for Eastern Europe * ln GDP per capita 1.0670 0.4688 (0.4673) 2.28 (2.28) 0.024 (0.026)
Constant -5.1640 1.1805 (1.4728) -4.37 (-3.51) 0.000 (0.001)
  1. *The results as reported after a robust and country clustering are reported in the parenthesis.
  2. Dependent variable: log ratio of price of media and advertising to GDP per capita
  3. Breusch-Pagan test of heteroskedasticity: 1.91 (p = 0.1667 (Chi2)).
  4. VIF test for multicollinearity is not appropriate for this model due to the inclusion of interaction variables.
