  1. Notes: Child HH members are household members under 5 years of age. HH size is total household size. The latest survey for ANC4+ and SBA is 2014. The latest survey used in this table for Contraceptive is 2011. We used 2011 to add more family planning variables that were not included in the 2014 mini-DHS. Regions are dummies for each region with one reference region (Tigray) omitted from the regressions
