  1. Explanatory note. The table displays component loadings and weights per item, eigenvalue and Cronbach’s alpha per subscale and canonical correlation per index
  2. aVrooman and Hoff [34]
  3. b,cComponent loadings in OVERALS are similar to factor loadings in a factor analysis. Weights are similar to standardised regression coefficients [44, 45]
  4. dThe canonical correlation is calculated with the formula: rd = ((K x Ed) – 1) / (K – 1), whereby K = number of sets, d = factor number (in this case only one factor was calculated), and E = the eigenvalue of the factor/index. rev = recoded in reverse order
