Table 7 Indirect effects of knowledge on practices via attitudes

From: Knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) toward COVID-19: a cross-sectional study in South Korea

Dependent Variable Mediator Est. 95% BCa
Wearing facial masks Perceived susceptibility −0.0021 [− 0.0064, 0.0015]
Perceived severity 0.0001 [−0.0015, 0.0014]
Efficacy belief 0.0253 [0.0126, 0.0401]
Practicing hand hygiene Perceived susceptibility −0.001 [− 0.0018, 0.0002]
Perceived severity 0.0002 [−0.0013, 0.0015]
Efficacy belief 0.0218 [0.0101, 0.0362]
Avoiding crowded places Perceived susceptibility −0.0013 [− 0.0081, 0.0047]
Perceived severity 0.0001 [−0.0025, 0.0026]
Efficacy belief 0.0274 [0.0140, 0.0429]
  1. Note. Unstandardized point estimates (Est.) are the indirect effect of the IV on the DV through the mediator
  2. BCa bias-corrected confidence interval; 95% bias-corrected confidence interval does not cross zero, and thus, mediation is assumed
