Table 2 Pearson's correlation between significant variables in ‘early’ vs. ‘late’ adolescents

From: The relationship between drive to thinness, conscientiousness and bulimic traits during adolescence: a comparison between younger and older cases in 608 healthy volunteers

  Age Eating disorders inventory - drive to thinness Eating disorders Inventory - bulimia BigFive conscientiousness
Early adolescence Age 1 −.02 −.10 .13
Eating disorders inventory drive to thinness −.02 1 .31** −.04
Eating disorders inventory bulimia −.10   1 −.12
BigFive conscientiousness .13    1
Late adolescence Age 1   −.10 .206*
Eating disorders inventory drive to thinness −.042 1 .51** −.085
  1. Not flagged = not significant; *p = <.05 or significant; **p = <.001 or highly significant; correlation measures refer to those variables already showing a statistically significant difference between early vs. late adolescent groups (as reported in Table 1); additional correlation measures failed to show significant values.
