  • Note: Coefficients reported with robust SEs in parentheses. No estimates for presidential birth district obtained for parasitic control aid because no parasitic control aid was allocated to the president's birth district. Covariates from household surveys are measured at baseline levels. Traditional authorities that did not receive aid are excluded from models.
