Remember that we are using natural logarithms, where the base is e ≈ 2.71828. Logarithms may have other bases, for instance the decimal logarithm of base 10. (The base 10 logarithm is used in the definition of the Richter scale, for instance, measuring the intensity of earthquakes as Richter = log(intensity). This is why an earthquake of magnitude 9 is 100 times more powerful than an earthquake of magnitude 7: because 109/107 = 102 and log10(10 2) = 2.)

The Grammar of Science: Let’s ‘Log’ (Part 1)
Many statistical procedures have the assumption that the variables in the model should be normally distributed. A significant violation of the assumption can increase errors in study conclusion,
Abstract: As a result of perennial economic policies in-appropriation or insufficiency in curbing economic problems, the paper investigated the interpretation of transformed variable coefficient in a

Prediction of Maximum Monthly Rainfalls for Different Return Periods using Frequency Factor Analysis for Dhemaji Region in Assam, India
Maximum monthly rainfall data of Dhemaji region in Assam, India for a period of 35 years (1980-2014) were analyzed. The expected maximum monthly rainfalls by using the frequency factor approach for
Does height matter for earnings? Evidence from Russia
This study explores the link between height and earnings, using data from the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey for the year 2015, and suggests that height is a significant predictor of earnings in Russia.
Machine learning models to replicate large-eddy simulations of air pollutant concentrations along boulevard-type streets
Regression models are used to replicate modelled air pollutant concentrations from LES in urban boulevards and it is shown that in general, log-linear regression gives the best and most robust performance on new independent data.
The impact of age and familiarity with the environment on categorical and coordinate spatial relation representations.
New evidence is provided for the role of familiarity with geographical areas and its impact on the representation of categorical and coordinate relations, with practical implications for the assessment of topographical disorientation in aging.
Income Inequality: Do Different Inequality Measures Show Different Impacts on Economic Growth, at the State Level? An Analysis of the State of New Jersey
This paper investigates whether the use of different inequality measures is instrumental in determining impact on economic growth at the State level. We find that different measures show different
