NOTE: 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. 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 part-time equation is from 1989 to 2010 with the number of observations equal to 242. The time period used to estimate the part-time equation is from 1980 to 2010 with the number of observations equal to 341. 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.
