To what extent does socioeconomic status explain differences in health between Roma and non-Roma adolescents in Slovakia?
Author(s): Kolarcik P, Orosova O, Reijneveld SA, van Dijk JP, A Madarasova-Geckova
Abstract:

The Roma make up one of the largest ethnic groups in Europe. The few studies that are available report health among the Roma as considerably worse than that of the majority population, and virtually nothing is known about the health status of Roma adolescents. The purpose of this study was to compare the self-reported health outcomes of Roma adolescents living in Roma settlements with adolescents from the majority population and to assess the impact of socioeconomic status on the results obtained.

Author(s): Madarasova-Geckova A, van Dijk J P, Kolarcik P, Reijneveld S
Abstract:

Based on the European Union Minorities and Discrimination Survey, Roma belong to a high-risk group with regard to discrimination. Ethnic discrimination might contribute to gaps in health between the Roma and non-Roma populations. The aim of this study was to compare the perceived discrimination among Roma adolescents living in Roma settlements with adolescents from the majority population.
