Table 2 First and second groups of models - Health measures regressed on difficulties occurring between 1987 and 1993 in CEE country groups and in CEE and West

From: Transition shocks during adulthood and health a few decades later in post-socialist Central and Eastern Europe

  1. We control for individual characteristics and country effects. Logit odds ratios are reported. 95% CI displayed in brackets. The Wald test tests the equality of the coefficients of the stress indicators interacted with the country group indicators
