  1. Standardized beta coefficients (Beta) for each individual independent variable was calculated to compare the strength of the effect of each to the dependent variable. The higher the absolute value of the beta coefficient, the stronger the effect. Coefficient of determination (R2) was calculated to evaluate the proportion of the variance in the dependent variable that is predictable from the independent variables. The coefficient of determination assesses how well the model explains and predicts future outcomes. Confidence interval (CI) is the margin of error of the Beta. P value determines the significance of the results. P value < 0.05 was considered significant
