Ethnic differences in asthma treatment among Swedish adolescents: A multilevel analysis of individual heterogeneity.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Adolescents with immigrant or ethnic minority background suffering from asthma receive on average less appropriate anti-asthmatic medication (AAM) than the majority population. However, those findings are based on analyses of differences between group averages which prevents our understanding of individual heterogeneity around the averages. Taking into account individual socioeconomic factors and medical needs, we performed multilevel analysis in order to evaluate if maternal country of birth (MCOB) accurately identifies adolescents with inappropriate AAM use.
