Meanwhile, the first-order correlation coefficient for LNY versus MCFAM is relatively small.
As discussed above, most of the research examining stressor-strain relations while controlling for NA have typically calculated zero-order and first-order correlations between stressor and strain variables controlling for NA using procedures described by Cohen & Cohen (1983).
Thus, it is possible that any differences observed between zero-order and first-order correlations between stressor and strain measures and attributed to NA may be because of controlling for shared variance between NA and other independent and dependent variables (Williams et al.
Table 6 shows the estimated zero-order correlations between the stressor and strain variables (Model 1), and the estimated first-order correlations controlling for either neuroticism or NER (Model 2).
