1) Standard multiple regression analysis was used to explore the determinants of the HRQOL for the adolescents with leprosy-affected parents. R-Squared = 0.46, adjusted R-Squared = 0.44,**p < .001.

2) Gender (0 = girls, 1 = boys).

3) Participants with one or both parents affected by leprosy (0 = one parent , 1 = both parents).

4) Residence of participants (0 = leprosarium, 1 = hostel).
