  1. Note: Numbers presented are “odds ratio”. ***statistically significant at 1%, **statistically significant at 5%. *statistically significant at 10%. In the first regression, the outcome variable “using salary (A)” was coded as 0, and “using other means (B-E)” was coded as 1. In the second regression, the outcome variable “salary or saving (A-B)” was coded as 0, and “other means (C-E)” was coded as 1.
