  1. Covariates: age, education level, religion of both the wife and the husband, years of marriage, number of children, asset quartile; estimated coefficients constitute adjusted odds ratios for “A. logistic regression” and adjusted proportional odds ratios for “B. ordered-logistic regression”; p value in parenthesis
  2. *p < 0.1; **p < 0.05; ***p < 0.01
