(R2=.883 N=20)

Variable Coefficient Standard Error t-Value Significance
Percent of State's Population in Largest MSA* 0.04797 0.006 8.548 0.000
Mountain Division (dummy variable) 0.01146 0.004 2.621 0.017

* MSA = Metropolitan Statistical Area
Note: The regression was originally run with a constant, but it was not significant at the .05 level and was excluded from further regressions. The R-Squared from a regression through the origin is not directly comparable with a model including the intercept.
