  1. aData with a normal distribution are presented as mean (standard deviation), while the skewed data were expressed as the median (quartile range)
  2. bValues in boldface were major factor loadings that contribute to identify Factor 1
  3. cValues in boldface were major factor loadings that contribute to identify Factor 2
