  1. β denotes the estimated effect of the MSS program, and is obtained using a differences-in-differences specification that includes month of birth and community fixed effects and controls for maternal and child characteristics. %D expresses the estimated program effect as a percentage of the baseline average of the outcome variable. Standard errors in parentheses are clustered at the community level
