Socioeconomic status and race/ethnicity independently predict health decline among older diabetics
Access options available:. Using three years , , of nationally representative data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, I assessed the socioeconomic status SES gradient for odds of receiving a mammogram in the past two years and a Pap test in the past three years among White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian women living in the U. Mammogram and Pap test utilization were less likely among low-SES women. However, women of color experience less benefit than Whites from increasing SES for both screenings; as income and education increased, White women experienced more pronounced increases in the likelihood of being screened than did women of color. In what might be referred to as paradoxical returns , Asian women actually experienced a decline in the likelihood of obtaining a recent Pap test at higher levels of education. My findings suggest that women of color differ from Whites in the extent to which increasing socioeconomic resources is associated with increasing cancer screening utilization.
The prevalence of obesity was Compared with whites, the odds of obesity were significantly higher in Hispanics odds ratio, 2. Neither of these odds ratios changed meaningfully after adjusting for all 3 socioeconomic indicators Hispanics: odds ratio, 1. It is not known, for example, at what age the disparity emerges, even though it seems to be established by adolescence. Other prevalence studies in preschool children were conducted in a specific geographic location 14 or were restricted to low-income children. Although there is no single measure of socioeconomic status for children, 16 parental education and household income are commonly used and have independently explained variability in childhood obesity in prior studies.

Although the term disparities is often interpreted to mean racial or ethnic disparities, many dimensions of disparity exist in the United States, particularly in health. If a health outcome is seen to a greater or lesser extent between populations, there is disparity. It is important to recognize the impact that social determinants have on health outcomes of specific populations.
Metrics details. There are pervasive racial and socioeconomic differences in health status among older adults with type 2 diabetes. The study population was a subset of diabetic adults aged 65 and older from the Health and Retirement Study. Respondents were followed up to 16 years. Health decline was measured as a change in self-reported health status over the follow-up period.
In these latter outcomes, Black boys and girls perform better than White boys. Latino boys show small differences as compared to White boys, mainly in science assessments. Interventions to eliminate achievement gaps cannot fully succeed as long as social stratification caused by gender and racial discrimination is not addressed.

Личная массажистка разминала затекшие мышцы его шеи. Погрузив ладони в складки жира на плечах шефа, она медленно двигалась вниз, к полотенцу, прикрывавшему нижнюю часть его спины. Ее руки спускались все ниже, забираясь под полотенце. Нуматака почти ничего не замечал. Мысли его были. Он ждал, когда зазвонит прямой телефон, но звонка все не. Кто-то постучал в дверь.
Клушар закрыл глаза, силы покинули. Он едва дышал. - Хоть что-нибудь, - настаивал Беккер. - Может, вы знаете имя этой женщины. Клушар некоторое время молчал, потом потер правый висок. Он был очень бледен. - Н-нет… Не думаю… - Голос его дрожал.
И долго ты собираешься здесь сидеть. - Всю ночь, - безучастно ответила Сьюзан.
