B=regression coefficient. SE=standard error.
The negative coefficient for gender means males are more likely to say yes than females, the positive coefficient for education means that a higher degree of education yields a higher likelihood of saying yes to testing and the negative coefficient for the factor emotion reflects that those with a higher score for emotion were more likely to support genetic testing of their children.
