OPRC controlled for:
- consumption per capita
- ultra poor
- gender
- age
- married dummy
- education
- household size
- rural dummy
- asset index
- hungry season
- regional dummies

Additional control for crime (being attacked, burgled, livestock and petty theft) did not effect OPRC significantly.
