In line with this and as stated in the footnotes of Dr.Tabuga in her article, we would like to humbly request for the detailed results containing the coefficients of all explanatory variables and adjusted R2/Pseudo R2, especially the coefficient of the interaction term remittance dummy and log of expenditure per capita (REMIT*LOGY) using OLS (Working-Leser Model), QR and censored Tobit analyses should they still be available.
