Prior research suggests a partially mediated relation; however, these studies used cross-sectional designs which provide insufficient causal evidence. Method The study used longitudinal data available from the Midlife in the United States Study (MIDUS II, Biomarker project, and MIDUS III) applying structural equation modeling to evaluate whether s...

Objective This study used extensive Swedish registry data to investigate the link between psychiatric conditions diagnosed during military conscription and unemployment over two decades. Further, we i...

Abstract One major area that has gathered public attention in relation to climate change is health risks. Studies into risk perceptions have acknowledged differences between public and expert knowledge. What is less known is how perceptions of climate change related health risk vary between the public and health experts and how these differentiated perceptions are shaped and modified by everyday complex climate change narratives from multiple actors, and contextual ecologies of social and physic...

We assess the impact of India’s National Rural Employment Guarantee (NREG) scheme, the world’s largest workfare scheme, on healthcare utilisation – specifically maternal healthcare. The primary objective of NREG is to improve the income of rural households by guaranteeing 100 days of employment. We expect that by improving household income, thereby reducing some of the financial barriers, such as out-of-pocket payments, NREG can increase utilisation of maternal health services. Using a nationall...

Abstract Purpose Assess demographic patterns of parental concern or worry about concussion for their children; compare parent worry about concussion to worry about other health threats. Methods Survey data were obtained using a probability-based nationally representative cross-sectional online survey of parents ( n = 1025, 52% response rate). The association between family demographic characteristics and parent worry about concussion was assessed using multivariate logistic regression. The exten...

Women were excluded if they used other muscles in a visually perceptible way during the perineal contraction; with changes in the pelvic muscles tone; with urinary incontinence; with cogni...

Abstract Introduction People who experience mental illness are unlikely to seek help. Research suggests that mental illness stigma negatively impacts help-seeking, yet there is little information about factors that relate to stigma that are positively associated with help-seeking among those with compromised mental health. Emerging research suggests that aspects of the social identity perspective, namely group social identification and perceptions about the group, may provide insights as to how ...

Abstract Depression in adolescents and young adults remains a pressing public health concern and there is increasing interest in evaluating population-level inequalities in depression intersectionally. A recent advancement in quantitative methods—multilevel analysis of individual heterogeneity and discriminatory accuracy (MAIHDA)—has many practical and theoretical advantages over conventional models of intercategorical intersectionality, including the ability to more easily evaluate numerous poi...
