  1. Pearson correlation between some HoNOSCA scales and sum of similar items in ASEBA (age group: 11-17 years).
  2. *P < 0.05, ***P < 0.001.
  3. Analysis is of the oldest age group because these HoNOSCA scales were rated zero for 90%-100% of the children in the 6-10 year age group.
  4. All correlations in this table were also computed with Kendall's tau in SPSS software, giving no higher P values, except for HoNOSCA scale 13 poor school attendance vs TRF (P = 0.001).
