[…] IBM SPSS Statistics 22 for Mac (SPSS Inc., Chicago, Ill) was used for all regression analyses. Multinomial logistic regression analyses were conducted to examine the predictive effect of the parental work absenteeism (independent variables) on 1) increased symptom complaints and 2) school absence in the adolescent children (dependent variables). Multinomial logistic regression analyses were also used to examine the association between number of weekly symptoms (independent variable) and level of school absence (dependent variable).In order to assess whether adolescent symptom complaints mediated the association between parental work affiliation and school absence, indirect effects analyses were conducted within a structural equation modelling framework using version 0.5–16 of the Lavaan package [] in R for Mac version 3.1.1 []. Maximum likelihood estimation with bootstrapped (k = 1000) standard errors and confidence intervals was used according to recent recommendations []. Incomplete responses were handled using pairwise deletion, ensuring high data retention in the analyses (92.6% in analyses with mothers and 88.4% in analyses with fathers). […]
