I am wondering how many subsample ways or to get estimates for some sub-categories of the data without sub-sampling.

So far I know two approaches:

1> We can divide the whole sample into two subsamples and run the same main regression equation for these two subsamples and then comparing the coefficients of the variable of interest.

2> We can add the interaction between dummy representing for one subsample and the variable of interest like this.

I am wondering if we have any other way to do subsample?

    $\begingroup$ Sub-sampling means dividing sample. Adding interaction term is not sub-sampling, actually the whole advantage of the method is to get estimates for some sub-categories of your data without sub-sampling. $\endgroup$
