R2 = Coefficient of determination.
D.W. statistic = Durbin-Watson statistic, a test for autocorrelation among regression residuals. For more details see Johnson, J., and Dinardo, J. (1996). Econometric Methods. New York: McGraw-Hill.
NOTE: The regression method used to estimate the full-time and part-time equations was the pooled seemingly unrelated regression method. The time period used to estimate the equations is from 1989 to 2007. The number of observations is 209. For additional information, see Intriligator, M.D. (1978). Econometric Models, Techniques, & Applications. New Jersey: Prentice-Hall, Inc., pp. 165-173. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
