  1. (1) The “years of schooling” variable is not centered in Models 1 and 2, though it is centered in Model 3. (2) Control variables include sex, age, age squared, economic sector, hukou status, occupation, industry, weekly working hours and intercept (the Models for mainland China also include province dummies). (3) The non-standardized regression coefficients are reported, and the numbers in parentheses are standard errors
