WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SHIT?!?! PLEASE CHIME IN W HELP THX, green is no good.

but but but how can this beeeeeee?!?!?!?!?!?!? BJ DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA?!

so this makes sense


The relationship between an independent variable t20vsb20 (ratio of the average income
of the top 20% of families to the bottom 20% of families)
and the dependent variable jail (incarceration rate).
 
. reg jail t20vsb20
Source |       SS       df       MS              Number of obs =      50
-------------+------------------------------           F(  1,    48) =    8.50
Model |  146931.545     1  146931.545           Prob > F      =  0.0054
Residual |  830037.335    48  17292.4445           R-squared     =  0.1504
-------------+------------------------------           Adj R-squared =  0.1327
Total |   976968.88    49  19938.1404           Root MSE      =   131.5
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
jail |      Coef.   Std. Err.      t    P>|t|     [95% Conf. Interval]
-------------+----------------------------------------------------------------
t20vsb20 |   35.86663 12.30442     2.91   0.005     11.12693    60.60634
_cons |   19.77659   120.3311     0.16   0.870    -222.1653    261.7185
 
 

and this also makes sense


The relationship between an independent variable giniin1998 (Gini coefficient in 1998)
and the dependent variable jail (incarceration rate).
 
. reg jail giniin1998
Source |       SS       df       MS              Number of obs =      50
-------------+------------------------------           F(  1,    48) =   27.24
Model |  353698.451     1  353698.451           Prob > F      =  0.0000
Residual |  623270.429    48  12984.8006           R-squared     =  0.3620
-------------+------------------------------           Adj R-squared =  0.3487
Total |   976968.88    49  19938.1404           Root MSE      =  113.95
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
jail |      Coef.   Std. Err.      t    P>|t|     [95% Conf. Interval]
-------------+----------------------------------------------------------------
giniin1998 |   3392.179 649.9499     5.22   0.000     2085.368    4698.991
_cons |  -1018.368   265.7985    -3.83   0.000    -1552.791   -483.9439
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUT THIS IS JUST COMPLETELY NONSENSICAL?!?!?!?!


The relationship between 2 independent variables:
1) t20vsb20 (ratio of the average income of the top 20% of families to the bottom 20% of families)
and 2) giniin1998 (Gini coefficient in 1998); AND the dependent variable jail 
(incarceration rate).

. reg jail t20vsb20 giniin1998
Source |       SS       df       MS              Number of obs =      50
-------------+------------------------------           F(  2,    47) =   14.80
Model |  377580.071     2  188790.035           Prob > F      =  0.0000
Residual |  599388.809    47  12752.9534           R-squared     =  0.3865
-------------+------------------------------           Adj R-squared =  0.3604
Total |   976968.88    49  19938.1404           Root MSE      =  112.93
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
jail |      Coef.   Std. Err.      t    P>|t|     [95% Conf. Interval]

t20vsb20 |   -24.1171 17.62376    -1.37   0.178    -59.57154    11.33733
giniin1998 |   4568.753 1074.305     4.25   0.000      2407.53    6729.977
