Another concern is that

Another concern is that the panel nature of the data creates within-city error correlations and heteroscedasticity providing incorrect standard errors (Wooldridge 2002; Cameron and Trivedi 2005). So, to correct standard errors, I used robust standard errors clustered at the city-level. Table 10.

Institutional Moderating Effects for Both Models The both models imply the important consideration of institutional influences in the IAD framework. As the framework argues, institutions have both direct and moderating effect on community attributes’ influences. In other words, different institutional arrangements are expected to increase the influence of environmental community interests 58 . To test these effects, I estimate models with separate interaction terms between institutional variables and community environmental interests. These interaction terms involve different combinations of environmental interest variables with institutional variables. However, as interaction terms always do, putting all interaction terms in one model create unstable results because there are possible multicollinearity problems among interaction variables and constitute variables. Thus, I put three interaction terms at once in a model to reduce these problems. As the result tables in the next chapter show, interaction models are divided by three models. The first model is without interaction terms (first column in the result table). The second model includes interaction terms between mayor council form of government, and white, income, and homeownership (second column). The third and fourth models respectively include interaction terms on district election and Regional Planning Council participation with same community environmental interest variables as the second model (third and fourth column). 58 Interaction terms in this research are limited to the community interest variables that have been theoretically well developed since interaction terms make the entire model unstable. 74
