  1. 1In the estimation of Probit model, the dependent variable is the probability of child survival
  2. 2SE = standard error
  3. 3Marginal effects are partial derivatives of the characteristics—the values in parentheses are the P value
  4. 4 Immediate exclusive breastfeeding: yes = 1, 0 = otherwise
  5. 5Breastfeeding mixed with other milk: yes = 1, 0 = otherwise
  6. 6Breastfeeding with others liquids: yes = 1, 0 = otherwise
  7. 7Vitamins: yes = 1, 0 = otherwise
  8. 8Alcohol: yes = 1, 0 = otherwise
  9. 9Level of education: base = no education
  10. 10Woman lives with spouse: yes = 1, 0 = otherwise
  11. 11Woman is head of household: yes = 1, 0 = otherwise
  12. 12Healthy environment: yes = 1, 0 = otherwise
  13. 13Drinking water: base = access to drinking water
