  1. Each coefficient of the table presents the estimates of a panel regression of a given risk behavior variable on each of the socio-emotional skill scores. Each regression includes fixed effects by individual and year. CPS and Grit Scores are presented in standard deviations to ease interpretation. Clustered standard errors at the individual level are presented in parentheses
  2. *Significant at the 10 %; **significant at the 5 %; ***significant at the 1 %
