  1. b are the point estimates and se the standard errors. Cluster-robust standard errors and survey weights are used. HH and CC refers to household and credit card, respectively. Base category of categorical variables is lower than high school, unemployed, widowed, lower than 25 years, Asian, and ATM. Significance levels are denoted as ***p <0.01, **p <0.05, *p <0.1
