The relationship between tightness/looseness and dysthymia depression will exhibit a curvilinear relationship, such that very tight and very loose nations have worse outcomes relative to nations intermediate on tightness-looseness
Dysthymia was found to be higher in both very tight and very loose nations. Additionally, compared to the linear model (F=1.87, p=.18, R-Squared=.06), the quadratic model was a significant improvement (F-change=5.55, p=.03, R-Squared change=.16).
