This section is thus divided into four parts: He enjoys grilling, watching sporting events, and rooting for all Chicago teams. The additional models estimated for each outcome and shown in Tables 3 and 4 offer other key findings. First, the gaps between the top- and bottom-SES quintiles shrink, showing that SES-based gaps are partially explained by the variation in the controls which is not visible in the tables.
