  • The b coefficients for “Male,” “Sample A,” and “Sample B” indicate the deviation of well-being of these groups from the unweighted grand mean of well-being. The b coefficients for interaction terms indicate the deviation of Age and Age2 effects for sample A and sample B from the unweighted grand mean of the Age and Age2 effects.
