Table 3 Significant effects of the mediation analyses (Study 1)

From: Prevention praised, cure preferred: results of between-subjects experimental studies comparing (monetary) appreciation for preventive and curative interventions

Step 1: Effect of scenario condition on appreciation measures  
General appreciation scale B = .60, SE = .11, p < .001
Percentage that health insurance should compensate B = .17, SE = .63, p = .01
Allocation of money to Lytgens’ intervention/PSAs B = .60, SE = .30, p = .05
Step 2: Effect of scenario condition on explanatory variables  
Urgency to introduce method B = .61, SE = .18, p = .001
Certainty of attribution  
(Professor Lytgens is the person who saves lives) B = .77, SE = .23, p = .001
Step 3: Effect of significant explanatory variables on significant appreciation measures while controlling for scenario condition  
General appreciation scale  
-Urgency to introduce the method B = .29, SE = .07, p < .001
Percentage that health insurance should compensate  
-Urgency to introduce the method B = 2.06, SE = .33, p < .001
Step 4: Effect of scenario condition on significant appreciation measures while controlling for significant explanatory variables  
General appreciation scale B = .41, SE = .12, p = .001
Percentage that health insurance should compensate B = .32, SE = .58, p = n.s.
