  1. Notes: Un-weighted estimates are based on authors’ calculations using raw data from the World Health Survey conducted during 2002-2003. The data presented refer to the households, which responded to the survey question on whether or not a household member experienced any angina which includes diagnosed or symptomatic angina. 95% confidence intervals are reported in parentheses underneath each mean/proportion. Statistically significant difference between the treatment and matched controls households are shown at the significance level of 5%* based on the nearest-neighbor algorithm.
