  1. The summary index of risk behavior is an equally weighted average of the z-scores of its components (i.e., the eight measures of risk behavior). The z-scores are calculated by subtracting the control group mean and diving by the control group standard deviation. Clustered standard errors at he individual level are presented in parentheses

  3. *Significant at the 10 % level; **significant at the 5 %; ***significant at the 1 %. None of the coefficients are significant when we adjust the significance level using the Bonferroni’s correction for multiple testing
