  • The value displayed for t-tests are the differences in the means across the groups, with controls for randomization strata. Standard errors are clustered by geographic cluster (group of villages). Improved roof=1 if roof is finished roofing (ie, metal, wood, calamine/cement fibre ceramic tiles, cement or roofing shingles); improved walls=1 if walls are ‘finished walls’; improved floor=1 if floor is ‘finished floor’.
