Table 2 Details of models where health behavior sum score predicts life satisfaction after 9 years. Non-standardized estimates for linear regression models in which the baseline health behavior sum score predicts life satisfactiona. From: The Finnish population-based Health and Social Support Study

From: Health behavior of working-aged Finns predicts self-reported life satisfaction in a population-based 9-years follow-up

Model Estimate Standard error p-value AIC R2
Model 1: Crude linear model where health behavior sum score in 2003 predicts LSscore2012, no covariates − 0.51 0.033 < .001 55,163 0.02
Model 2: Model 1 + sex, age, education, diseases as covariates − 0.47 0.034 < .001 54,490 0.04
Model 3: Model 2 + LSscore2003 as a covariate −0.24 0.031 < .001 51,826 0.23
  1. LSscore2012 = Life satisfaction score after the 9-year follow-up in 2012; range 4–20, lower scores indicate better life satisfaction
  2. LSscore2003 = Life satisfaction score at baseline in 2003; range 4–20, lower scores indicate better life satisfaction
  3. alower scores indicate better life satisfaction
