Regressions include religion and social group dummies, district fixed effects and interview year fixed effects, and district-level pre-JGY health status interacted with interview year dummies. Standard errors clustered at the district level. 95% confidence intervals in parentheses. ***p < 0.01, **p < 0.05, *p < 0.1
