  1. Note: N = 3,288 for 1996/97 and 3,884 for 2014. All regressions are probit. Coefficients are average marginal effects. Standard errors used take into account sampling weights. In addition to the variables reported, all regressions control for division-specific fixed effects. Antenatal visit to doctor, delivery at health facility, early breastfeeding, and maternal CED and short stature are all dummy variables
