  1. Note: ***p < 0.01, **p < .05, *p < 0.10. Estimates are based on a linear probability model, but robust to maximum likelihood estimation. Standard errors in parentheses are robust. The omission of the main effect ‘Camp proximity (< 10 km)’ in models (3) and (6) represent a reparameterization of a full model, in order to provide the estimates for the comparisons of interest (e.g. females < 10 km vs. females > 20 km). Other covariates controlled for include female, age, married, household head, education at lower secondary level, size of household, share of children (per adult), city distance and the administrative sector
