  1. Kidscreen follow-up study 2003–2006 (n=404-415).
  2. Reference category: sex: female; rater: parent; year of assessment: 2003; level of education: university degree; child and parent self perceived health: good or less.
  3. The level of statistical significance was corrected for multiple tests (Bonferroni correction = p<0.0015).
