  1. a Self-sufficiency was measured on eleven life-domains. Participants indicated whether they were able to provide for themselves regarding these life-domains. Five response categories ranged from ‘no problems’ to ‘many problems’. Response categories were dichotomized into ‘self-sufficient’ versus ‘not to barely self-sufficient’ for each life-domain
