  1. MAFS Multidimensional Adolescent Functioning Scale. All correlations significant at p < 0.01
  2. Cronbach’s alpha coefficients were computed based on polychoric item correlation matrix computed in the total sample on pairwise complete observations
  3. aComputed for participants with complete observations: n = 335 (total), n = 116 (male sample), n = 219 (female sample)
  4. bComputed for participants with complete observations: n = 354 (total), n = 120 (male sample), n = 234 (female sample)
