  1. Marginal effect estimates reflect percentage changes in the probability of receiving all, some or no healthcare from VA resulting from unit increase in the county unemployment rate.
  2. Model 1: The baseline model including variables for county unemployment rate, age over 65 and the interaction between unemployment rate and age over 65.
  3. Model 2: The baseline model stratified by individual employment status.
  4. Model 3: The baseline mode also including individual income as an adjustment variable.
  5. Statistical significance at the 5%(*), 1%(**) and 0.1%(***) level.
