Intentions : «To describe the prevalence of lifestyle risk factors (LRF) for chronic disease by family origin (FO) among children in multiethnic, low-income, urban neighborhoods.» (p. 340)
Échantillon/Matériau : «16 elementary schools located in disadvantaged, multiethnic neighborhoods in Montreal, Canada. [...] 4659 schoolchildren aged 9-12 in grades 4-6.» (p. 340)
Instruments : «Subjects completed self-report questionnaires on sociodemographic characteristics and lifestyle behaviors; height and weight were measured in a standardized protocol. Fourteen FO groupings were identified based on language(s) spoken and countries of birth of both subjects and parents. We tested FO as an independent correlate of having 2 or more LRF, using the generalized estimating equations method.» (p. 340)
Type de traitement des données : Analyse statistique
«Relative to Canadian children, a higher proportion of Haitian, Portuguese, and other Central American/Caribbean children had 2 or more LRF, the proportion was similar among Cambodian, Vietnamese, Chinese, South American, East European, Arabic, Italian, and South Asian children, and lower among Salvadoran children. [...] Prevention programs for youth should take differential distribution of LRF by ethnicity into account.» (p. 340)
