  1. Notes: The numbers in parentheses are standard errors. **p < 0.01; *p < 0.05. N = 197,102. Omitted dummy variables as reference group are father’s occupation as peasant, born in January (for Model 1.1), and born in January–August (for Model 1.2, Model 1.3, and Model 1.4). Estimates for intercepts and control variables, including child’s year of birth, sex, sibship size, and rural-urban residence, are not presented in Table 1
