Title:
Modifiable behaviors help to explain the inequalities in perceived health associated with deprivation and social class: evidence from a national sample.
Authors:
Nevill, Alan M.; Donnelly, Paul; Shibli, Simon; Foster, Charlie; Murphy, Marie
Abstract:
The association between health and deprivation is of serious concern to many health promotion agencies. The purpose of the current study was to assess whether modifiable behaviors of physical activity (PA), sports participation, diet, smoking and body mass index (BMI) can help to explain these inequalities in a sample of 4653 respondents from Northern Ireland.
