  1. Note: This shows baseline means for the control group (1); the treatment group (2); attritors in the follow-up group (3); non-attritors (4); non-attritors with incomplete information in key variables (6); and non-attritors with complete information (7). T tests and significance levels for mean difference between columns 1 and 2, 3 and 4, and 6 and 7 are shown. To test for whether attrition or complete information on key variables differs across treatment and control groups, columns 5 and 8, respectively, show the difference-in-difference (DD) estimate: [T_(x=1)−T_(x=0)]−[C_(x=1)−C_(x=0)], where T and C stand for treated and control individuals, and x for attrition or complete information
