  2. Note: *significantat 10%; **significantat 5%; ***significantat 1%. Dependent variable is a dummy variable that equals 1 when the firm reports providing on-the-job training. Standard errors are clustered at the country and sector level. Columns (1) through (4) report the results of estimating the baseline specification-reported in column (3) of table 3-for different samples. Column (1) considers only firms located outside the capital city, column (2) considers only manufacturing firms, column (3) considers only low-tech firms and column (4) considers only high-tech firms. All the variables are defined in Additional file 3.
