  1. LPM denotes linear probability model. Sample: respondents aged 21–29 years in the DHS survey. The dependent variable takes the value 1 if the respondent works in agriculture and zero if not. Estimation via the linear probability model. Controls include age and regional, urban and rural dummies. Married is an indicator for the marital status of the respondent. Wealth is a normalised index of household wealth (see text). Married × wealth is the interaction of the two variables. HH size is the number of people in the household. No. aged < 5 is the number of children aged under 5 years. ***, ** and * reflect conventional significance at 1, 5 and 10% levels
