There was a statistically significant negative correlation (r (1,1007) = -.26,
p = .00) between participantsí general perceptions about the crisis and evaluations of supervisorsí leadership and communication. When working adults expressed more concern about the financial crisis, supervisor scores tended to be lower. Similarly, when participants were less concerned about the crisis, leaders received higher scores. About 11% of the variance in supervisor scores could be predicted by perceptions of the financial crisis (Adjusted R 2 = .11).
