  1. Exact agreement i.e. those allocated to the level of therapeutic security corresponding to the rating - 0 not followed up or followed up as an out-patient, 1 admitted to open ward, 2 admitted to PICU, 3 or 4 admitted to forensic (medium or high secure) service. Spearman rank correlation coefficient for five point rating (0 to 4) against outcome in four levels.
