  1. All tabulated effects are significant at the p < 0.001 level.
  2. The following predictors had no significant effect on scl-5 (p > 0.001): Partner's social support, partner's unemployment, and partner's education.
  3. a: Z-transformed, SD = 1. For all these risk factors, both the dependent and the independent variables are standardized. Thus, the reported adjusted b's equal Beta.
  4. b: SD = 0.18, β = 0.09, c:SD = 0.50, β = 0.06.
  5. d: frequency of extreme high score (men's and women's' education: more than 4 years university education).
  6. f: All predictors adjusted for all other predictors
