Multilevel mediation analysis (Study 1). Unstandardized coefficients are shown. All the individual-level predictors were centered on the community mean. All the community-level predictors were centered on the grand mean. The mediator, participation in collective activities, was centered on the grand mean, and then decomposed into the two levels as latent variables.

Results of the multilevel analysis: Independent self-construal as a function of logged annual household income. In the graph, the three solid lines are regression lines for the effect of individual-level income on independent self-construal at three levels of provincial income (average household income at the province level). The dotted line is the regression line for the relationship between province-level income and independent self-construal.
