  1. Standard errors within parentheses are clustered at couple level. Significance levels are denoted by * (\(p<0.05\)), ** (\(p<0.01\)), and *** (\(p<0.001\)). Both specifications contain calendar year dummies, age difference, and pre-child controls for differences in income and education. The data cover the period 1987–2005, since this is the period of coverage for the in-patient care data. Estimated for couples with at most two children
