Disease relevance of Residence Characteristics


High impact information on Residence Characteristics

  • We designated this variant as G6PD Sinnai from the place of birth of the propositus [2].
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of atopy in children living in an arctic environment, and to examine whether atopy and total IgE levels were associated with parental place of birth, as a measure of ethnicity, and travel history [3].
  • A significant association was found between CES-D and MMS scores, but after adjusting for age, living arrangements, and especially functional limitations, the relationship remained strong only for women [4].
  • The incidence of thyroid cancer was 2-3 times larger in French Polynesia than in Maoris of New Zealand and Hawaiians of Hawaii. Based on few cases, a nonsignificant (p = 0.1) increase with decreasing distance between Mururoa and the birth place was observed in women born between 1950 and 1975 for thyroid cancer [5].
  • METHOD: A total of 509 children with NHB (bilirubin > 15 mg %) were compared with the same number of controls (matched for gender, place of residence, and date and place of birth) with respect to in-patient psychiatric care during 1971-1993 [6].

Biological context of Residence Characteristics

  • The following explanatory variables were considered: age, sex, color, previous treatment with schistosomicide, place of birth, quality of the houses, water supply for the household, distance from houses to stream, and frequency and reasons for water contact [7].

  • Significant determinants of vaccination coverage were: place of birth (chi 2 = 9.7; 2 df; P = 0.008); less than or equal to 6 months stay in Cape Town (odds ratio (OR) 2.22; 95% CI 1.2-4.0%); and home birth (OR 3.21; 95% CI 1.2-8.4%) [18].
