  1. Notes: This table shows baseline means for those in the control group (column 1); in the treatment group (column 2); attritors in the follow-up (column 3); non-attritors (column 4); non-attritors but with incomplete information in key variables (column 6); and non-attritors with complete information (column 7). T tests and significance levels for the mean difference between columns 1 and 2, 3 and 4, and 6 and 7 are also shown. To test for whether either attrition or having 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 either for attrition or having complete information
