Appendix A. Results of the one-factor ANOVA among different desirable states, and independent t tests between desirable and deviated restored states of the same age, on the 12 structural variables.

Table A1. Results of the one-factor ANOVA among different desirable states, and independent t tests between desirable and deviated restored states of the same age, on the 12 structural variables. Where the cells are blank, those variables were not analyzed for that restoration age as all values were zero.
