  1. *Individual-level data (N = 1,406) were used for these analyses; N = 322 for 15 m1 to 15m5 items as these are asked only if respondent indicates that the team could not work together more than one-half the time.
  2. ** p < 0.00384 (Bonferroni correction to account for multiple comparison was used.)
