4 of 9
Why was the correlation between LCU scores and and illness higher on board cruiser 1 and 3 than 2?
The difference in Cruiser 2 was caused by increased stress on board, which was not accounted for in their TLCU score and so the correlation is weaker.
5 of 9
What happens if the environment the pps is in is stressful?
Previous life events have less of an effect on illness.
6 of 9
Who can better predictions be made for?
Pps over 21 and enlisted married men rather than young single men.
7 of 9
What was the low-order positive relationship between?
Pre-cruise life change intensity and reported illness at sea
8 of 9
