Thus data points based on few recruits receive less weight. Our strategy is first to estimate an unrestricted equation, allowing all coefficients to differ for all plants. This equation is equivalent to estimating eleven separate equations, one for each plant. We then test whether it is permissible, statistically, to restrict some or all coefficients to be equal across plants – though we always allow for different plant intercepts.
