  1. Results are presented as marginal effects. Sample weights are applied. Covariates controlled for are age, age squared, number of children, marital status, residence, education, prescription medication, and short-term crisis coefficient (t2009). εMissing coefficient due to perfect predictability of underweight; hence optimal weight and underweight are combined in this estimation as a benchmark. σMissing coefficient due to perfect predictability of daily drinker; hence daily drinker and frequent drinker are combined in this estimation. δMissing coefficient due to perfect predictability of seldom smoker; hence seldom smoker and weekly smoker are combined in this estimation. *p < 0.1, **p < 0.05, ***p < 0.01
