Ethnicity and health

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow

Abstract

Diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart and kidney disease and cancers are more common in some ethnic minority groups than in the indigenous White population. Higher death rates for these conditions for minority groups have also been documented since the 1970s. The causes of these high rates in adulhood remain a mystery. Poverty and lifestyle contribute but do not fully account for these differences. Genetic differences have also been suggested but the evidence is inconsistent. Very little is known about the transmission of health advantage or disadvantage across generations. A large part of our research programme focus on the health of UK-born minority groups (including Black Caribbeans, Black Africans, South Asians) to examine if and when differences in key health indicators develop in childhood, and how these are shaped by social conditions, such as deprivation, family life and school life. We surveyed about 6000 school children in early adolescence and saw them again in later adolescence. We found that in early adolescence, blood pressure was generally lower than average in minority groups that are prone to high blood pressure in adulthood. By late adolescence, however, African origin boys were more likely to have a higher blood pressure. Minority adolescents appear to have better mental health than White British adolescents in spite of greater socio-economic disadvantage. The young people are now in their early 20s and we are examining how best to track their health and social conditions in adulthood.

Technical Summary

Addressing ethnic inequalities is a key aspect of initiatives of UK governments and also of international organisations. In spite of considerable research, the causes of ethnic differences in health (e.g. excess hypertension in Black African origin and coronary events in South Asians) remain a scientific and policy challenge. The overall aim of our programme is to focus on how the timing and duration of social exposures are related to ethnic differences in health and health related behaviours over the life course. This allows us to identify key time points when interventions to reduce ethnic inequalities in health could be most effective, but also gives insights into improving health outcomes for all groups, especially where some ethnic groups do better than average.

Our objectives are to investigate:
(1) the extent to which social, economic and psychological circumstances contribute to differences in health at different stages of the life course within and between ethnic groups;
(2) change and stability in key influences on health such as family life, socio-economic disadvantage and neighbourhood environments and
(3) the extent to which and why the health of ethnic groups of similar ancestry varies in different country settings.

The lack of longitudinal studies of ethnic minorities has made it difficult to investigate when health differences emerge, and to understand transmission of health potential across generations. Our Determinants in young Adulthood Social well-being and Health (DASH) study is a unique resource that we use to track ethnic differences in cardiovascular, respiratory and mental health from youth to adulthood. DASH started in 2002/03 with about 6000 11-12y olds, 80% ethnic minorities, in 52 schools in London. The cohort is now aged 21-23y and a feasibility study is currently examining the possibility of follow-up in different locations (e.g. GP surgeries, clinical research facilities, homes, community pharmacies), collecting bio-marker data for the first time, and establishing culturally appropriate psychosocial measures for this age group. Our international comparative studies include countries at different stages of development, examining how migrant groups fare in different settings.

The findings from our observation studies have led to the development of complex intervention studies, including the prevention of obesity in ethnic minority young people, improving the quality of life of breast cancer survivors, reducing work related injuries inn migrant workers. Various activities in the communities foster information exchange and ensure culturally appropriate designs.

Title DASH study database 
Description The ethnically diverse London-based DASH cohort comprises about 6000 people of White European, South Asian (Indian, Pakistani or Bangladeshi), Black African (Caribbean, West African and other African) and mixed ethnicity origin, who are now in their early 20s. The study started in 2002/03, when the cohort was aged 11-13y, and a follow-up was conducted in 2005/06. Data were collected on socio-economic and psychosocial factors, health behaviours, and cardiovascular, respiratory and mental health. An extensive feasibility study with 665 participants aged 21-23y was completed in 2014 and signals that successful follow-up of this cohort, their parents and their offspring is possible. Self-complete questionnaires, physical measures and qualitative interviews have been used to collect the data. Data on neighbourhood exposures have been merged to the individual data at the lower super output area level. Data from questionnaires, and physical measures (including blood bio-markers) are held as STATA data files. A description of variables is held in an Access data base. Saliva samples from the baseline survey are in freezer storage and results of cotinine levels are held in the data files. Blood samples and DNA extracts from the feasibility study are in freezer storage. Recordings from qualitative interviews are stored in digital MP3 format, transcripts of the interviews and interview notes in Microsoft Word format, and coded transcripts/interview notes in Nvivo 10. The study provides unique opportunities to study the biological, social and environmental influences affecting the mental and physical health of young people from different ethnic backgrounds.
