shows the prevalence of important somatic complaints in subgroups where a specific regulation disorder is present or not. E.g. If excessive crying is present, abdominal colic is also present in 26.9% of the cases, but this proportion is only 9.7% in a subgroup where excessive crying is not a significant complaint.
