The relationship between tightness/looseness and the composite score of all 8 (dependent) variables, such that very tight and very loose nations have worse outcomes relative to nations intermediate on tightness-looseness
Nations that were very tight or very loose exhibited lower composite scores. Additionally, compared to the linear model (F=.15, p=.70, R-Squared=.01), the quadratic model was a significant improvement (F-change=25.17, p<.001, R-Squared change=.46).
