dc.description.abstractWu, Gang, Association Between Socioeconomic Statuses and Behavioral Risk Factors and Self-Reported Health Status. Master of Public Health (Biostatistics), May 2005, 70pp., 5 figures, 4 tables, references, 58 titles. Socioeconomic statuses (SES) and behavioral risk factors determine more than 70% of overall health outcome of American population. The effects of SES and behavioral risk factors on self-reported health status (SRHS) were studied using binary logistic regression models. Age group, education level, ethnicity, physical activities, cholesterol intake, smoking status, and drinking status were identified as significant predictors (p [less than] 0.05) to SRHS based on overall model. Significant predictors for each ethnic group varied based on the same model separated by ethnicity: White (insurance coverage, physical activities, smoking status, and drinking status), Black (gender, vegetable intake, and Hispanic (cholesterol intake). Ethnic disparities in SES and behavioral risk factors were discussed. The findings may have potential importance in public health intervention.
