 Notes to the table: (i) The second column reports the impact effect for the probability of remitting using a probit model based on the full sample of remitting and nonremitting siblings. The dependent variable is equal to 1 if a migrant remitted and 0 otherwise. The third column presents estimates for the remittance volume model based on OLS using the sample of nonzero remitters. Here, the dependent variable is the total amount of cash and inkind remittances sent to the household measured in Kenyan shillings. (ii) *denotes statistical significance from zero at the 10 % level using a twotailed test. (iii) Robust standard errors clustered by household are reported in parentheses. (iv) ^{Ϯ}denotes the base group. (iv) Other variables are included in these models but not shown here in order to conserve space (see text for details)
