EXPLANATION OF INTENTION TO VACCINATE AGAINST COVID-19 AND THE AUTHORITIES' SUPPORT THROUGH THE THEORY OF PLANNED BEHAVIOR. AN EXPLORATORY STUDY IN ROMANIAN SAMPLE.
This study investigates the intention to vaccinate against Coronavirus and to support the authorities in limiting the effects of the pandemic from the perspective of the theory of planned behavior in a sample of 771 Romanian adults. We intend to improve the prediction offered by the TPB model by constructing two alternative models that take into account additional variables such as irrational beliefs, past behavior, and risk perception. Data analysis involved performing hierarchical regressions and SEM modeling. Hierarchical regression analyzes show that the model based on demographic variables such as age and education and the constructs of the theory of planned behavior, attitude, social norms, and control beliefs best explain vaccination intention (75%) and support for authorities (29%). This additional material presents the raw data used in the study, in SPSS type files. For SEM analysis the data are in JASP format.
