Notes: Table displays coefficients and robust standard errors in parentheses. *p < 0.1, **p < 0.05, ***p < 0.01 refer to levels of significance at 10%, 5% and 1% levels respectively. The same set of controls were used for each country (religion, mother’s occupation dummies, father’s occupation dummies, wealth quintile dummies, rural residence and province dummy variables).
