  1. Sample consists of all 2,392 individuals who were exposed to the supplementation intervention between 1969 and 1977, 1,448 of whom are included in the main analyses. Standard errors calculated allowing for clustering at the birth-year-community level are shown in parentheses below coefficient estimates, which are in bold if significant at 5 % or lower; p values are in brackets (StataCorp 2011).
