b and Beta control for:
-employment status
-income
-education level
-age
-gender
-Gypsy ethnicity
-living in Budapest
-marital status
-number of children

Similar results are obtained when personal income is used instead of household income adjusted for household size.

Analysis incorporates sampling weights for the correction of sampling design (1992) and sample fit (1998).
