Note: Regressions, which are simultaneously estimated, include own and spousal characteristics (age, log-hourly wage, completed years of education, a good health status indicator, and a recent pregnancy indicator), food ratio, household non-labor income, number of children, state and year fixed effects. In addition, husband’s (wife’s) regression includes a husband’s (wife’s) sedentary-job type indicator Standard errors in parentheses.
