Table 5 Preliminary results for the NAME numerical score obtained through Kendall’s τ correlation

From: The neonatal assessment manual score (NAME) for improving the clinical management of infants: a perspective validity study

  Kendall’s τ (CI 95%) p-value
Gestational agea 0.35 (0.17, 0.50) 0.001
Birth weightb 0.41 (0.24, 0.56) < 0.001
Post-menstrual age at assessmenta 0.29 (0.10, 0.45) 0.008
Weight at assessmentb 0.31 (0.13, 0.48) 0.003
Complexity indexc −0.32 (− 0.48, − 0.14) 0.005
  1. a Gestational age and age at assessment were measured in weeks
  2. b Birth weight and weight at assessment were measured in hectograms
  3. c Complexity index was calculated as the number of complications (e.g., surgery, intrauterine growth restriction) and organs/systems affected by pathologies
