(1) Robust standard errors are reported in parentheses.
(2) **indicates the level of significance at less than 0.05 and *indicates the level of significance at less than 0.1 level.
(3) The estimates of the Heckman sample selection model are significantly superior to those of the standard tobit model (at 0.05 levels) for all equations except religion and international donation expenditures, as demonstrated by the Rho statistics. Accordingly, religion and International equations are estimated with a tobit model.
