  1. The relationship between flourishing score and age was measured with a linear model (flourishing score as outcome and age as predictor), for the overall sample and for the two sexes separately. The relationship between FS and the categorical variables was examined using Kruskal-Wallis rank sum tests. * p < 0.05
