  1. The p-value is less than 0.05 for all effect estimates in the table. Analyses in the reduced models controlled for education level, marital status, self-rated health 1995, and occupation. The full model also controlled for gender, social network, cash margin, smoking, alcohol intake, and body mass index. Crude refers to the estimate with unemployment as the only predictor. Estimates represent the health effect on unemployed compared to employed individuals.
