Prices were expressed in U.S. dollars and adjusted using inflation rates observed in the Brazilian economy in 2015, 2016, and 2017. Calculations followed standard methods, as described in the

pollution is one of the three things they are most concerned about ( Kenyon, 2017 ). As Kenyon reports “this is up from 26% in 2011 and is now the #3 concern behind ‘money enough to live right and pay the bills’ (36% in 2016) and ‘inflation and high prices’” (35% in 2016). As noted above, there is good

subscales, variance inflation factors (VIFs) were examined. The threshold for identifying collinearity between CAAS constructs was a VIF greater than 10 ( Belsley, Kuh, & Welsch, 1980 ). Next, binomial logistic regression was used to assess if coach-athlete attachment subscales significantly contribute to

A repeated-measures analysis of variance was conducted on the testosterone and cortisol concentrations with a Bonferroni correction factor to control for alpha inflation. Correlations between subject age, body composition

The cuff was inflated to 50 mm Hg above resting systolic blood pressure for 5 minutes, with measurement resuming 30 seconds prior to cuff deflation and continuing for 5 minutes postcuff

Statistical significance was set a priori at p  < .05, and the Bonferroni correction was used to correct for alpha-inflation due to multiple comparisons. All analyses were conducted using SPSS
