  1. Pearson correlations between the HoNOSCA scales and selected ASEBA syndrome scales (attention problems, somatic problems, and social problems).
  2. *P < 0.05 and false-discovery rate (FDR) < 0.18, **P < 0.01 and FDR < 0.06, ***P < 0.001 and FDR < 0.004.
  3. 1 The syndrome scale "somatic problems" is part of "internalizing problems" in Table 4.
  4. Bold numbers are correlations expected to be high (HoNOSCA scale 2 vs ASEBA attention problems; HoNOSCA scale 8 vs ASEBA somatic problems; HoNOSCA scale 10 vs ASEBA social problems).
