  1. a NA = non adjusted scores, A = adjusted scores
  2. b Unstandardized regression coefficient (b) with 95% confidence interval (CI). The coefficients show adjusted mean deviations from spouses of persons without mental disorder in fractions of a standard deviation, p < 0.001 for all coefficients.
  3. c Partial Eta Squared.
