Results from several multiple linear regression analyses explaining the variance in selected HoNOSCA scales from similar ASEBA scales completed by parents (CBCL), teachers (TRF), and patients 11-17 years (YSR), controlled for sex and age (continuous variable).

*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001.

1 β is negative for CBCL in this model (age group 11-17 years); in all the other regression models, the ASEBA predictors had positive β values.
