Inequalities in risk marker acquisition in the Scottish population

Inequalities in risk marker acquisition in the Scottish population

This research theme is led by Tony Robertson, in collaboration with John Frank and Alastair Leyland and Linsay Gray (MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow), and involves investigating inequalities in chronic disease risk marker acquisition across the lifecourse by factors such as age, sex, socioeconomic circumstances and place in the Scottish population using data from the Scottish Health Survey (SHeS). The first project in this research theme is focusing on identifying and distinguishing the age, period and cohort effects in the prevalence of overweight and obesity using several markers of adiposity and body composition in a representative sample of the Scottish population using SHeS data from 1995-2011.
