  1. 1In the estimation of Probit model, the dependent variable is the probability of child survival
  2. 2SE = standard error
  3. 3The marginal effects are partial derivatives of the characteristics—the values in parentheses are the P value
  4. 4Immediate Exclusive breastfeeding: coded 1 = yes, 0= otherwise
  5. 5Breastfeeding mixed with other milk: coded 1 = yes, 0 = otherwise
  6. 6Breastfeeding with other liquids: coded 1 = yes, 0 = otherwise
