TSLS

An infection in which the initial site is skin or soft tissue. This may occur in adults or children and it is readily transmitted from person to person. Typically there is a history of a minor, usually nonpenetrating, local trauma that within the next 1 to 3 days develops into the usual toxic shock syndrome (TSS) caused by a toxin elaborated by certain strains of Staphylococcus aureus.

TSLS estimation was used to address the possibility that HMO penetration is endogenous, because OLS estimation results in inconsistent coefficient estimates when explanatory variables are endogenous (Greene 1993).
Given these results and the potential endogeneity of religious participation, marital status, and number of children, it is useful to consider the OLS regressions as well as the TSLS regressions in evaluating the findings.

These analyses yielded smaller p-values, resulting in more significant relationships than the TSLS results.
