Background: There is a higher prevalence of depression in women of low socioeconomic status (SES) than other women. Further, previous depression is the best predictor of future depression. Therefore, due to the negative effects of maternal depression on the fetus and subsequent child, particularly in combination with low SES, depression is ideally treated before pregnancy. During the year before pregnancy and by SES, we aimed to assess the odds of a physician visit associated with maternal depression and the mean number of physician visits in women by depressive status...

Study Objectives: Earlier studies have linked neighborhood disadvantage with poor sleep outcomes. However, little is known about the association between changes in one's neighborhood over time and night sleep and napping. In over 300,000 middle-to-old aged Americans, we examined neighborhood socioeconomic status (SES) and change in neighborhood SES in relation to nocturnal sleep duration and napping. Methods: Nocturnal sleep duration and daytime napping were self-reported at baseline (1995-1996)...

Introduction: As with most emerging nations, Brazil lacks up-to-date data on the prevalence of obesity and overweight among its children. Of particular concern is the lack of data on children in early adolescence, considered by many to be the crucial stage for weight-related healthcare. Objective: To assess regional, socioeconomic, and gender differences in the prevalence of obesity and overweight among Brazilian early adolescents. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted on a racially diverse sample of students aged 10-13 years, from schools in three geographic regions (north, northeast, south) ( N  = 1,738)...

Background: There is an evidence of social inequalities in weight status in adolescence but the diversity of family socioeconomic status (SES) indicators can lead to discrepant findings. We aimed to identify how combination of family SES indicators can help measuring weight socioeconomic gradient (WSG) among adolescents. Methods: Cross-sectional data from 2113 adolescents (13-18 years old) of the PRALIMAP-INÈS trial were used. Multiple SES indicators and assessment of weight status including body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) and self-perception of overweight were used...

BACKGROUND: In 2016 the U.S. Congress directed the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to implement the 21st Century Cures Act to fix a flaw in the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP). One section of the Act is intended to remove bias in calculating penalties for hospitals treating large percentages of low socioeconomic status (SES) patients. A study was conducted to analyze the effect of the introduction of SES hospital peer groups on the number and distribution of the hospitals being penalized...

OBJECTIVES: To examine the association between gout severity and (i) socioeconomic status; (ii) work absence. METHODS: Postal questionnaires were sent to adults registered with 20 general practices who had consulted with gout or been prescribed allopurinol or colchicine in the preceding two years. Gout severity was defined using proxy measures: number of attacks, history of oligo/polyarticular attacks, disease duration, and allopurinol use. Socioeconomic status (SES) was defined using the English index of multiple deprivation (IMD) (area-level) using self-reported educational attainment (individual level)...

BACKGROUND: A recent study showed higher risk of bacteremia among individuals with low socioeconomic status (SES). We hypothesized that patients with a low SES have a higher risk of intensive care unit (ICU) admission with sepsis compared to patients with higher SES. METHODS: This was a case-control study on patients with sepsis admitted to the ICU at Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark (2008-2010). Three hundred eighty-three sepsis patients were matched on sex, age, and zip code with controls retrieved from the background population...

BACKGROUND: Low socioeconomic status (SES) has been associated with lower alcohol consumption, but also with heavier drinking. To explain this contradictory relationship, we examined SES differences in drinking patterns from an age-period-cohort (APC) perspective. METHODS: Data are from seven waves of the U.S. National Alcohol Surveys from 1979 to 2010. As a proxy for SES, educational attainment was used. Past-year alcohol volume was calculated from frequency (never-to-every day) and usual quantity (1-2, 3-4, or 5-6 drinks)...

BACKGROUND: For Chlamydia trachomatis (CT), a test of cure (TOC) within 3-5 weeks is not recommended. International guidelines differ in advising a Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) TOC. Retesting CT and NG positives within 3-12 months is recommended in international guidelines. We assessed TOC and retesting practices including extragenital testing in general practitioner (GP) practices located in different socioeconomic status (SES) areas to inform and optimize local test practices. METHODS: Laboratory data of 48 Dutch GP practices between January 2011 and July 2016 were used...

Socioeconomic status (SES) and its association with cancer in general have been thoroughly studied in the last decades. Several studies have shown associations between SES and many types of cancer such as lung cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. For gliomas, no clear occupational or exposure risk factors have been identified, although some possible risk factors such as use of cellular telephone are still controversial. The aim in the present study is to analyze whether there is an association between SES and development of brain cancer...
