  1. Notes: WHIP dataset. OLS estimates are reported. Proxy Unemployment has been obtained by subtracting from 1 the employment rate at provincial level. Further controls are the same used in Table 2. Standard errors are allowed for within provincial correlation. The symbols ***, **, * indicate that coefficients are statistically significant, respectively, at the 1, 5, and 10 percent level.
