Fig. 2

Graphic representation of the SEM exploring the relationships among the predictor variables of the TPB and intention to do a gynaecological examination. Legend: Ovals indicate latent constructs; rectangles indicate observed constructs. Error values associated with each are indicated as small circles with the letter “e” inside them. Standard coefficients are shown above the paths between constructs showing positive and negative associations. Factor loadings are indicated between latent constructs and the indicators. The variation explained in the model by the six latent constructs, r2, is provided. The direction of the coefficients – positive or negative, show whether the relationship between the predictor and outcome is positive or negative and the number indicates the degree to which the predictor affects the outcome. Bold arrows show variation in latent variables whereas dashed arrows show variation in the intention to perform a gynaecological examination. Standardized effect sizes and their statistical significance (* p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001) are shown. DMA, direct measures of attitude; DMSN, direct measures of subjective norm; DMPBC, direct measure of perceived behavioural control; +ATT, positive measures of attitude (indirect); −ATT, negative measures of attitude (indirect); SN, indirect measures of subjective norm; PBC, indirect measures of perceived behavioural control
