Table 8 - Results of weighted Z tests for multiple comparisons.

Weighted Z: the combined weighted value for multiple Z scores for each individual test; n: number of tests across which Weighted Z score was calculated; P value: significance of Weighted Z score. Significance: * = P < 0.05, ** = P < 0.005.
