HRQL: health related quality of life.adue to small number of cases included in scores between 0 and 49.9 they were re-categorized in one group. bmeasured with the SDQ. cmeasured with the Oslo Scale.dmissing values are presented in some subgroups. e the percent value of each cell is computed as: n in the cell/N in the whole sample [Example, n:25/N:47 = (53.2). Note 2 missing values in the SDQ, N = 49].
