Extended Data Fig. 8

Birth-weight is modelled without controlling for gestational age (red lines) and controlling for it (green lines). Remoteness is based on a index capturing travel distances from larger cities. Household sanitation is defined as having an inside toilet and a private tap with running water. Shading shows 95% credible intervals. These are marginal effects, having controlled for maternal and healthcare characteristics and random municipality effects.
