Note: Results of independent sample t-tests (continuous variables) and chi-square tests (categorical variables). SEM = standard error of mean, N = number of observations, df = degrees of freedom, t = t-value, Χ2 = Chi-square-value, p = probability for two-sided tests. Scores were z-standardized to the population of analysis.
