- Women were more likely to go on to complete the final survey than men
- Older participants were more likely to continue (the average age went from 30 years old to 34 years old)
- People who were single, or living separately from their partner were less likely to finish time point six than people with other relationship statuses (married, de facto, divorced, widowed, etc.)
- Participants with more kids and/or more education were more likely to follow through to the last survey
- Employment status did not show any effects on completion rates, and people were equally likely to complete the surveys regardless of whether they were receiving treatment for a mental or physical difficulty.
It won't be such a long break until I have new information this time - I just moved house (again) and got married.
We've just bought a super computer, which will help us keep making progress on the models that we were stuck on earlier, and will hopefully speed up our progress on analysing time point one so we can move onto the good stuff!
I'll keep you all posted as more stuff comes up!
