  1. All correlations are significant at the .01 level (two-tailed)
  2. The strength of all correlations between the Social Well-being dimension of MHC-SF and the subscales of MMQL and HADS were statistically significantly weaker (p < 0.01) as compared to the correlations between the Emotional and Psychological Well-being dimensions of MHC-SF and the subscales of MMQL and HADS, except ‘Depression’
