  1. The 95% CI have been calculated using the binomial Wald assumption (Brown et al. 2001).
  2. EE (Emotional Exhaustion): high (≥31), moderate (21–30), low (≤20).
  3. PA (Personal Accomplishment): high (≤35), moderate (41–36), low (≥42).
  4. DP (Depersonalization): high (≥11), moderate (6–10), low (≤5).
  5. Age range for the burned out: 21–60 and for the non burned out: 21–63.
  6. Work experience for the burned out: 1–40 and for the non burned out: 1–41.
  7. *Scores within individual burnout domains were used both as continuous variables and categorized into low, intermediate and high scores using the cutoffs suggested by Maslach et al.[8].
  8. **The sample size does not total to 1,482.
  9. NS: Non significant.
