This chapter continues to use the data analysed in Chapter Eight to examine relationships between the five conditions (or types of ill-being). The main findings are that the conditions (or type of ill-being) are not as closely related as is often thought. All two-way correlations were weak with one exception (need and QoL = 0.470, p 〈 0.01), and most of the relative risk ratios were also low, indicating that in most cases children with one condition are not disproportionately likely to have another. The reasons for these disjunctions are elaborated in the case studies and show how each concept taps different aspects of children's lives.
