              The question is then how to interpret the estimated coefficient b. The nice result for us is that “standard logarithmic adjustments for semi-elasticities in arcsinh-linear equations with dummy variables can be used with little error for dependent variables with untransformed means roughly greater than 10.”. That is, for y large enough (he says y>10 as a guideline), then the just like in a log-linear specification, the percent change in y due to treatment changing from 0 to 1 is approximately exp(b) – 1.
