  1. HRQL, Health-related Quality of Life; EWB, Emotional Well-being; B, regression coefficient; SE, standard error; sr2, squared semi-partial correlation
  2. *Difference in predicted follow-up EWB score for a 1 SD difference in interval variables or the difference relative to the reference category for nominal variables. Effects with a magnitude of at least 2 points are considered meaningful and are indicated in bold font.
