  1. Notes: OLS regression results with robust standard errors clustered at the individual or couples’ level in parentheses. Asterisks indicate p values according to: ***p < 0.01, **p < 0.05, *p < 0.1. The post-reform dummy equals one in the years 2008–2010/2008–2011/2008–2012, and zero in the years 2005–2006/2004–2007/2003–2007. Control variables are the same as in Table 4
