  1. Linear models that use data from both baseline and follow-up surveys and include facility fixed effects. Results show point estimate and 95% confidence interval. Standard errors are clustered at facility level. Light and electricity satisfaction index is the mean score of two statements on a 1–5 scale: (1) I am satisfied with the availability and brightness of light in this facility. (2) I am satisfied with the availability of electricity in this facility. Job satisfaction index is the mean score of four statements on a 1–5 scale: (1) These days, I feel motivated to work as hard as I can. (2) Overall, I am satisfied with my job. (3) Overall, the morale level at my department is good (4) I plan on staying at this position for the next year
