The Table reports the average number of hospitalization days between the 7th and 28th day of life in the intervention and control groups and the intervention effects on hospitalization days. The unadjusted model includes indicators for the country of birth as covariates. *, ** and *** indicate p < 0.1, < 0.05 and < 0.01, respectively. The standard deviations of the number of days hospitalized and the standard errors of the intervention effects are in parentheses.
