Therefore, a married player is estimated to score just over half a point more per game (experience and position held fixed), but the estimate is not statistically different from zero (p-value = .43). So, based on points per game, we cannot conclude married players are more productive. VER. 10/23/2012. © P. KOLM 25 (v) Add interactions of marital status with both experience variables. In this expanded model, is there strong evidence that marital status affects points per game? Solution: Adding interactions of marital status with both experience variables, the new estimated regression equation becomes points = 5.892 + 0.6845exper − 0.02838exper 2 + 2.271guard (1.34) (0.433) (0.0326) (1.00) 1.677 forward − 2.624marr + 1.292marr ⋅ exper − 0.09360marr ⋅ exper 2 (1.00) (2.03) (0.680) n = 269, R2 = 0.106, VER. 10/23/2012. © P.
