  1. Multiple linear regression analyses showing various psychiatric disorders and their association with four domains of quality of life 2 years post-tsunami. Figures are unstandardized regression coefficients, with 95 % confidence intervals in parenthesis. All independent variables were entered simultaneously into the models. Age and gender were controlled in all models. Neither age nor gender was a significant predictor of quality of life in any of the models. Quality of life is measured by four domains from WHOQOL-BREF
