  3. We conducted the multiple (binomial) logistic regression analysis with forward stepwise variable selection to detect predictors of donor satisfaction. Six variables from univariate analyses with p < 0.1 were included in the model. Of the six variables, the following three were excluded in forward stepwise variables selection: “increase in self-esteem/self-worth after donation” in Perception of donation results and transplant procedure, donor Self-Rating Depression Scale score, and recipient CSQ-8 score
