The results of the impact of social-environmental conditions are shown in Table 2. According to Hinkle et al. (1988), the r² ≥ 0.85 was considered high correlation, r² = 0.65 to 0.84 was considered medium correlation, r² = 0.45 to 0.63 was considered moderate correlation, and r² = 0.25 to 0.44 represented low correlation. The values were considered significant when p ≤ 0.05.
