  1. Pearson correlations between the HoNOSCA scales and ASEBA internalizing, externalizing, and total problems scales.
  2. *P < 0.05 and false-discovery rate (FDR) < 0.15, **P < 0.01 and FDR < 0.03, ***P < 0.001 and FDR < 0.006.
  3. Bold numbers are correlations expected to be high (HoNOSCA scale 1 vs ASEBA externalizing; HoNOSCA scale 9 vs ASEBA internalizing; HoNOSCA total score vs ASEBA total problems).
