dc.descriptionAhmad, W. I. U., Kernohan, E. E. M., & Baker, M. R. (1989). Influence of ethnicity and unemployment on the perceived health of a sample of general practice attenders. Journal of Public Health, 11(2), 148-156.
dc.description.abstractPublished research shows people of Asian origin to be less healthy than the white population. Most of the studies have not taken account of differences in employment between populations of white and Asian origin. Also, little research has been carried out on the patients perceived health. This study, based on 215 patients from an inner-city general practice in Bradford, looks at the influence of ethnicity and unemployment on the perceived health of the sample. The Nottingham Health Profile was used as the measure of perceived health. In the study population, twice as many Asians as white people were unemployed, and significant differences in perceived health were observed between the employed and the unemployed. After controlling for employment, Asian males had significantly better perceived health than white males in the 16–34 age group. Perceived health of Asian and white females was similar on most morbidity dimensions.en_US
