Notes: This table estimates the effect of vaccination camps on the gender imbalance in vaccina- tion. An observation is a child aged six months to two years and the dependent variable is the number of vaccinations the child has received (0-8). # Camps is the number of Family Health and Welfare Camps reported in the village in the previous year – 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 or more. All interactions between gender and controls include interactions between gender and the control linear and squared. The main effect of girl is subsumed in the state-gender interactions. Other controls: maternal age, maternal education, family durable ownership, a dummy for being Hindu, birth order and village size. Full regressions with all controls reported are in Appendix Table W.1.1

(on author’s website). standard errors in parentheses, clustered at the village level.
