** Inconclusive.
R2 = Coefficient of determination.
D.W.statistic = Durbin-Watson statistic, a test for autocorrelation among regression residuals. For more details, see Johnston, J., and Dinardo, J. (1996). Econometric Methods. New York: McGraw-Hill.
NOTE: The regression method used to estimate the full-time equation was the pooled seemingly unrelated regression method. The regression method used to estimate the part-time equation was the pooled seemingly unrelated regression method with a first-order autocorrelation correction. The time period used to estimate both equations is from 1980 to 2008. The number of observations for the full-time equation is 319 and the number of observations for the part-time equation, after the correction for autocorrelation, is 308. For additional information, see Intriligator, M.D. (1978). Econometric Models, Techniques, & Applications. New Jersey: Prentice-Hall, Inc., pp. 165–173.
