  1. *indicates p ≤ 0.05. Each regression includes the same covariates as in Table 3 with the exception of the males only and females only regressions which did not include the gender indicator. For ease of exposition, only those covariates with significant coefficients in at least one regression are reported here. Complete results are available upon request. Heteroskedasticity-robust standard errors are clustered at the person-level. OR = ecoef = ratio of the odds of stunting/wasting after a unit increase in the corresponding covariate to the odds before the increase
