Table 3 Estimates for health behavior sum score predicting subsequent life satisfaction adjusted for covariates. Non-standardized estimates for the linear regression model in which the baseline health behavior sum score predicts subsequent life satisfactiona.

  1. LSscore2003 = Life satisfaction score in 2003, lower scores indicate better life satisfaction
  2. HBSS2003 = Health behavior sum score i.e.number of protective health behaviors at baseline in 2003
  3. alower scores indicate better life satisfaction
