  1. OLS estimates and robust standard errors (SE); estimates are for the impact of a one-point increase in the log of GDPpc on mortality; variables included in each model are listed but their estimates are omitted from table
  2. The variable Period was coded 0 for the years 1980–1995 and 1 for the years 2000–2010. The coefficient for the term ‘Interaction: Log GDPpc * Period’ thus refers to the interaction between the variables Log GDPpc and Period. The coefficient for the variable Log GDPpc refers to the effect of GDPpc on mortality in the first period (1980–1995)
