Notes: This table reports the results from a regression specification on post-earthquake characteristics by distance to the activated fault line. The coefficient on distance to the fault line is reported, along with the number of observations, the

*R*-squared, and the overall mean of the variable. All regressions include controls for distance to the earthquake epicenter, local slope, distance to the nearest fault line, and district fixed effects. The adult health regressions include age and sex indicator variables. Measured distance to water is replaced by zero when recall survey notes that water was available in the house. For all regressions, we report the absolute value of the minimum detectable effect size at 80 percent power, calculated as the center of the*t*-distribution for which 80 percent of the probability mass falls outside the critical 5 percent value determined by the standard error and degrees of freedom of the corresponding point estimate.
