Self-esteem −0.018 −0.117 −5.167 0.000
  1. Note: Stepwise multiple linear regression analysis was used to predict the related influential factors of psychological problems
  2. Assumed predictors: age, gender, father’s education, negative life events, family functioning, social support, passive coping, active coping, Psychoticism, Extraversion/Introversion, Neuroticism, Lying and self-esteem
  3. “B” refers to the Regression Coefficient, represents the difference in the predicted value of the psychological problems for each one-unit difference in a influencing factor, if other factors remain constant; “Beta” refers to Standardized Regression Coefficient. “Beta” is the estimates resulting from a regression analysis that have been standardized so that the variances of dependent and independent variables are 1
