The association between different socioeconomic indicators and Common Mental Disorders in regional public health (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tidigare studier visar en ökning av psykisk ohälsa och olika socioekonomiska indikatorer är olikastarkt associerade med prevalensen för psykisk ohälsa, men det är osäkert i vilken grad och hursambandet verkar i en regional kontext. Syftet med studien är att utifrån regional data analyserasambandet mellan olika socioekonomiska indikatorer (Yrkesgrupptillhörighet, Utbildningsnivå, ochEkonomisk stress) och mild psykisk ohälsa i relation till män och kvinnor i olika åldersgrupper samtdiskutera om det finns en socioekonomisk gradient i psykisk ohälsa. Resultaten visar att ekonomiskstress har ett starkt samband till psykisk ohälsa både för män och kvinnor i olika åldersgrupper.Resultatet visar även på kön- och åldersskillnader i regressionsanalyserna både inom indikatorernaskategorier och sambandens styrka. Ingen signifikant gradient mellan samtliga nedbrutnasocioekonomiska indikatorer och psykisk ohälsa kunde påvisas eftersom det förekom omvändaassociationer inom och mellan sambandsanalyserna. Den stora variationen i sambandsanalysernapåvisar att ytterligare stratifieringar kan göras både för de oberoende och beroende variablerna.

Abstract [en]

Previous studies in public health show an increase in Common Mental Disorders, and where some socioeconomic indicators are differently associated with the prevalence of mental illness, it’s uncertain to what extent and how the associations displays in a regional public health context. The purpose of the study is to analyze, on the basis of regional data, the association between different socioeconomic indicators (Occupational group, Educational level, and Economic Stress) and Common Mental Disorders in relation to men and women in different age groups and discuss whether there is a socioeconomic gradient in Common Mental Disorders. The results shows that economic stress is highly associated to mental illness for both men and women in their different age groups. The regression analyzes also show gender and age differences both within the indicators' categories and the statistical significance of the correlations. No significant gradient between the various socioeconomic indicators used and Common Mental Disorders could be demonstrated since there were reverse associations within and between the statistical analyzes. The great variat ion in the correlationanalyzes shows that further stratifications can be made both for the independent and dependent variables.
