Hi i'm running an OLS regression with multiple independent variables... I was told I need to explain the coefficients with either the t-stat or the p-value.. I was planning to use the t-stat.. but im kind of unsure.. what is a low t-stat and what is a high t-stat??? Also if a coefficient has a high t-stat does that mean that the coefficient is significant or not significant.. any help would be appreciated.. im really confused!!

Do your observations fit one of these criteria?

The population distribution is normal.

The sampling distribution is symmetric, unimodal, without outliers, and the sample size is 15 or less.

The sampling distribution is moderately skewed, unimodal, without outliers, and the sample size is between 16 and 40.

The sample size is greater than 40, without outliers.
