  1. Notes: Each cell is based on a separate regression and uses variation in the proportion of conscripts or variation in the proportion having special exemption status between cohorts. The number of observations in the first regression is 73,892; for the second type of regressions this is 62,243 (the birth cohorts of 1956 and 1957 are not included). Standard errors in parentheses: ***p <0.01, **p <0.05, *p <0.1.
