  1. Middle columns are standardized regression coefficients for six regressions. Each row is a predictor variable included in each regression model. Variables that were statistically significant at p < .05 are italicized. Far right column summarizes whether conclusions were different across models (“same” indicates that the variable was always statistically significant or was always not significant, “different” indicates that the variable was statistically significant in some models but not others)
