Table 3 Linear regression coefficients of the association between veterans total war exposure and significant BSI outcomes of their offspring, crude (Model 1), and after adjusting for veterans’ respective symptom dimension (Model 2)

From: Intergenerational transmission of war-related trauma assessed 40 years after exposure

Outcomes Model 1 Model 2 β2/β1 (%)
BSI β 1 95% CI β 2 95% CI
Somatisation 0.025 0.001, 0.050 0.024a − 0.004, 0.051 4
Phobic anxiety 0.014 0.000, 0.027 0.014b − 0.002, 0.029 0
GSI 0.022 0.005, 0.038 0.018 c 0.003, 0.040 18
PSDI 0.020 0.006, 0.033 0.021 d 0.004, 0.039 − 5
  1. Italic shows statistically significant results
  2. BSI Brief Symptom Inventory, CI confidence interval, GSI Global Severity Index, PSDI Positive Symptom Distress Index
  3. aAdjusted for the veterans’ somatisation dimension
  4. bAdjusted for the veterans’ phobic anxiety dimension
  5. cAdjusted for the veterans’ GSI
  6. dAdjusted for the veterans’ PSDI
