From: Associations between mental health competence and indicators of physical health and cognitive development in eleven year olds: findings from the UK Millennium Cohort Study

  Maternal-report (n = 12,082) Teacher-report (n = 6739)
High MHC (Hi PS; Hi LS) High-Moderate MHC (Hi PS; Mod LS) Moderate MHC (Mod PS; Mod LS) Low MHC (Mod PS; Low LS) High MHC (Hi PS; Hi LS) High-Moderate MHC (Hi PS; Mod LS) Moderate MHC (Mod PS; Mod LS) Low MHC (Mod PS; Low LS)
