Forbes might be on the wrong side of the battle of the sexes, but at least they've got one thing right: Milwaukee is America's drunkest city. Milwaukee ranks high for its drinking habits across the board. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey 2004, more than 70% of adult Milwaukeeans reported that they had had at least one alcoholic drink within the past 30 days--the highest percentage on our list. Twenty-two percent of Milwaukee respondents confessed to binge drinking, or having five or more drinks on one occasion--also the highest on our list. And 7.5% of the population were reported as heavy drinkers--adult men that have more than two drinks per day, or adult women who have more than one drink per day.

*  Re: st: age adjusting complex sample survey data
... I spoke with the Stata staff recently and also a number of other well informed individuals at the CDC who use Stata. There are a number of us out here using Stata and working with complex survey data who have been trying to figure out if age standardization with complex survey data can be done. Someone told me that we can probably hand calculate our age adjusted prevalence estimates after we obtain our crude estimates by the age-specifed distribution. I am using BRFSS Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System data and would like to create age-adjusted prevalence estimates for several subgroups with dissimilar age structures. If these data were not complex survey data I would use the dstdize command, but I am not sure if that command can be used in this case. The CDC has published guidelines for age adjustment using the 2000 US population http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/statnt/statnt20.pdf and provides code for Sudaan, but I have been unable to find any comparable ...

(1/527) The community-oriented primary care experience in the United kingdom.

The UK National Health Service has long delivered public health programs through primary care. However, attempts to promote Sidney Kark's model of community-oriented primary care (COPC), based on general practice populations, have made only limited headway. Recent policy developments give COPC new resonance. Currently, primary care trusts are assuming responsibility for improving the health of the populations they serve, and personal medical service pilots are tailoring primary care to local needs under local contracts. COPC has yielded training packages and frameworks that can assist these new organizations in developing public health skills and understanding among a wide range of primary care professionals.  (+info)

(2/527) A reexamination of smoking before, during, and after pregnancy.

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the patterns and correlates of maternal smoking before, during, and after pregnancy. METHODS: We examined socioeconomic, demographic, and clinical risk factors associated with maternal smoking in a nationally representative cohort of women (n = 8285) who were surveyed 17 +/- 5 months and again 35 +/- 5 months after delivery. RESULTS: Smoking rates among women with a college degree decreased 30% from before pregnancy to 35 months postpartum but did not change among the least educated women. Risk factors clustered, and a gradient linked the number of risk factors (0, 2, 4) to the percentage smoking (6%, 31%, 58%, P <.0001). CONCLUSIONS: The period of pregnancy and early parenthood is associated with worsening education-related disparities in smoking as well as substantial clustering of risk factors. These observations could influence the targeting and design of maternal smoking interventions.  (+info)

(3/527) Breast, cervical, and colorectal carcinoma screening in a demographically defined region of the southern U.S.

BACKGROUND: The "Southern Black Belt," a term used for > 100 years to describe a subregion of the southern U.S., includes counties with high concentrations of African Americans and high levels of poverty and unemployment, and relatively high rates of preventable cancers. METHODS: The authors analyzed data from a state-based telephone survey of adults age >or= 18 years to compare the cancer screening patterns of African-American and white men and women in nonmetropolitan counties of this region, and to compare those rates with those of persons in other southern counties and elsewhere in the U.S. The primary study groups were comprised of 2165-5888 women and 1198 men in this region interviewed through the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. The respondents lived in predominantly rural counties in 11 southern states with sizeable African-American populations (>or= 24.5% of county residents). The main outcome measures were recent use of the Papanicolau (Pap) test, mammography, test for fecal occult blood in the stool (FOBT), and flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. RESULTS: Between 1998-2000, 66.3% (95% confidence interval [95% CI] +/- 2.7%) of 1817 African-American women in the region age >or= 40 years had received a mammogram within the past 2 years, compared with 69.3% (95% CI +/- 1.8%) of 3922 white women (P = 0.066). The proportion of African-American and white women who had received a Pap test within the past 3 years was similar (85.7% [95% CI +/- 1.9%] vs. 83.4% [95% CI +/- 1.5%]; P = 0.068]. In 1997 and 1999, 29.3% of African-American women in these counties reported ever receiving an FOBT, compared with 36.9% in non-Black Belt counties and 42.5% in the remainder of the U.S. Among white women, 37.7% in Black Belt counties, 44.0% in non-Black Belt counties, and 45.3% in the remainder of the U.S. ever received an FOBT. Overall, similar patterns were noted among both men and women with regard to ever-use of FOBT, flexible sigmoidoscopy, or colonoscopy. Screening rates appeared to vary less by race than by region. CONCLUSIONS: The results of the current study underscore the need for continued efforts to ensure that adults in the nonmetropolitan South receive educational messages, outreach, and provider recommendations concerning the importance of routine cancer screening.  (+info)

(4/527) Youth risk behavior surveillance--United States, 1999.

PROBLEM/CONDITION: Priority health-risk behaviors, which contribute to the leading causes of mortality and morbidity among youth and adults, often are established during youth, extend into adulthood, are interrelated, and are preventable. REPORTING PERIOD: February-May 1999. DESCRIPTION OF THE SYSTEM: The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) monitors six categories of priority health-risk behaviors among youth and young adults --behaviors that contribute to unintentional and intentional injuries; tobacco use; alcohol and other drug use; sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) (including human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] infection); unhealthy dietary behaviors; and physical inactivity. The YRBSS includes a national school-based survey conducted by CDC as well as state, territorial, and local school-based surveys conducted by education and health agencies. This report summarizes results from the national survey, 33 state surveys, and 16 local surveys conducted among high school students during February-May 1999. RESULTS AND INTERPRETATION: In the United States, approximately three fourths of all deaths among persons aged 10-24 years result from only four causes: motor-vehicle crashes, other unintentional injuries, homicide, and suicide. Results from the 1999 national Youth Risk Behavior Survey demonstrate that numerous high school students engage in behaviors that increase their likelihood of death from these four causes--16.4% had rarely or never worn a seat belt; during the 30 days preceding the survey, 33.1% had ridden with a driver who had been drinking alcohol; 17.3% had carried a weapon during the 30 days preceding the survey; 50.0% had drunk alcohol during the 30 days preceding the survey; 26.7% had used marijuana during the 30 days preceding the survey; and 7.8% had attempted suicide during the 12 months preceding the survey. Substantial morbidity and social problems among young persons also result from unintended pregnancies and STDs, including HIV infection. In 1999, nationwide, 49.9% of high school students had ever had sexual intercourse; 42.0% of sexually active students had not used a condom at last sexual intercourse; and 1.8% had ever injected an illegal drug. Two thirds of all deaths among persons aged > or = 25 years result from only two causes--cardiovascular disease and cancer. The majority of risk behaviors associated with these two causes of death are initiated during adolescence. In 1999, 34.8% of high school students had smoked cigarettes during the 30 days preceding the survey; 76.1% had not eaten > or = 5 servings/day of fruits and vegetables during the 7 days preceding the survey; 16.0% were at risk for becoming overweight; and 70.9% did not attend physical education class daily. ACTIONS TAKEN: These YRBSS data are already being used by health and education officials at national, state, and local levelsto analyze and improve policies and programs to reduce priority health-risk behaviors among youth. The YRBSS data also are being used to measure progress toward achieving 16 national health objectives for 2010 and 3 of the 10 leading health indicators.  (+info)

(5/527) Smoking cessation and prevention: an urgent public health priority for American Indians in the Northern Plains.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the prevalence of cigarette smoking and smoking cessation among American Indians living on or near Montana's seven reservations to those of non-Indians living in the same geographic region. METHODS: Data for Montana Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) respondents (n = 1,722) were compared to data from a BRFSS survey of American Indians living on or near Montana's seven reservations in 1999 (n = 1,000). Respondents were asked about smoking and smoking cessation as well as cardiovascular disease (CVD) and selected risk factors. Quit ratios were calculated for both groups. RESULTS: American Indians were more likely to report current smoking (38%) than non-Indians (19%; p < 0.001). Thirty-seven percent of Indian respondents with CVD risk factors reported current smoking, compared with 17% of non- Indians with CVD risk factors. However, there was no significant difference in reported smoking rates between Indians (21%) and non-Indians (27%) with a history of CVD. Indian smokers were more likely to report quitting for one or more days in the past year (67%), compared with non-Indians (43%). Quit ratios were significantly lower among Indians (43%) than among non-Indians (65%). CONCLUSIONS: High smoking rates in Indians, particularly among those with other CVD risk factors, demonstrate an urgent need for culturally sensitive smoking cessation interventions among Northern Plains Indians and highlight the need for the Surgeon General's focus on smoking in minority populations.  (+info)

(6/527) Preventive-care practices among persons with diabetes--United States, 1995 and 2001.

Effective interventions are available to persons with diabetes that can prevent or delay the development of serious health complications such as lower limb amputation, blindness, kidney failure, and cardiovascular disease. However, the use of preventive-care practices is lower than recommended, and the national health objectives for 2010 aim to improve care for all persons with diabetes. To assess progress toward meeting these goals, CDC analyzed data on selected diabetes-related preventive-care practices, including influenza and pneumococcal vaccination coverage, from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) from 1995 and 2001. This report presents the findings of these analyses, which indicate that levels of preventive-care practices among persons with diabetes in the United States increased from 1995 to 2001. Further efforts are needed to improve care among persons with diabetes, reduce the burden of diabetes-related complications, and achieve the national health objectives, including continued surveillance of diabetes-related preventive-care practices and collaboration with community-based organizations, health-care providers, public health officials, and persons with diabetes.  (+info)

(7/527) Risk behaviors of Filipino methamphetamine users in San Francisco: implications for prevention and treatment of drug use and HIV.

OBJECTIVE: This study describes the demographics, HIV risk and drug use behaviors, and psychosocial status of Filipino American methamphetamine users in the San Francisco Bay area. METHODS: Individual interviews were conducted with 83 Filipino American methamphetamine users, recruited through snowball sampling methods. A structured survey questionnaire included measures of drug use behaviors, HIV-related sexual behaviors, psychosocial factors, and demographics. RESULTS: Filipino methamphetamine users tended to be male, to have low levels of perceived personal control in their lives, and to report low levels of shame about their drug use. Methamphetamine use was strongly associated with HIV-related risk behaviors. Frequent methamphetamine users tended to engage in drug use before or during sex and to use condoms infrequently. Commercial sex activity was associated with frequency of methamphetamine use. About one-third of the study participants had never been tested for HIV. CONCLUSION: HIV/STD and drug abuse prevention programs that target Filipino Americans are needed. These programs should be tailored to meet clients' needs on the basis of gender, employment status, acculturation, and psychosocial variables that affect drug use and sexual behaviors.  (+info)

(8/527) Prevalence of self-reported arthritis or chronic joint symptoms among adults--United States, 2001.

Arthritis and other rheumatic conditions comprise the leading cause of disability among adults in the United States, and the cost of this public health burden is expected to increase as the U.S. population ages. State-specific estimates of the prevalence of arthritis and chronic joint symptoms (CJS) are important for planning health services and programs to prevent arthritis-related disability and for tracking progress toward meeting state and national health objectives for 2010. In 2001, questions about arthritis and CJS were asked of adult respondents in every state through the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). This report summarizes the results of that survey, which indicate that the estimated U.S. prevalence of arthritis/CJS was 33.0% among adults. Increased intervention efforts, including early diagnosis and appropriate clinical and self-management (e.g., physical activity, education, and maintaining appropriate weight), are needed to reduce the impact of arthritis and CJS.  (+info)

What are some risk factors for type 1 and type 2 diabetes?


  • What are some risk factors for type 1 and type 2 diabetes? What went wrong with the insulin production and how does that affect the body’s ability to fuel itself with blood sugar? This is a bit confusing to me so I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
  • Type 1: In majority of cases, the causes is unknown (idiopathic diabetes). In other cases, immune disorders can cause type 1 diabetes. Factors that precipitate the diabetes onset include certain bacteria, viruses and some food chemical toxins. Other factors include: family history; ethnicity (non-Hispanic population such as Americans, Caucasians); auto-immune disorder (celiac or thyroid diseases); when your mom has stopped breastfeeding you in the first three months; being a men. In this case your body recognizes its cells as "stranger" and begins to fight them. Therefore, beta cells of pancreas are destroyed and cannot produce anymore insulin. Type 2: Risk factors are divided in a) those you can control (weight; diet; alcohol intake; smoking; stress; malnutrition), and b) those you can't control (family history; age; being part of high-risk population). In this case, beta cells of pancreas can still produce insulin; however for the above-mentioned factors, this insulin is not effective in the periphery (muscle or fat cells). In both cases (type 1 and 2 diabetes); what we have inherited in our genes is a major factor.

What are risk factors at home that could lead to depression/mental health problems?


  • I'm writing about a student who appears to have mental health problems leading up to exams. I have to include what risk factors could be found at home that could add to this problem - any suggestions?
  • One thing not yet mentioned by the posters is genetics. If you have mentally ill parents it is more likely that you will be mentally ill. Losses at home, recent death of parent or sibling. Abuse of all types. Being a child of an alcoholic causes depression, and addictions. Insufficient sleep, nutrition, safety can contribute to poor mental health. So if you live in a home that has drug dealers coming and going and guns, and cops breaking in and out, you will not be a normal kid.

What are the risk factors in a diabetic patient and oral surgery?


  • My father has type 2 diabetes. He's appointed to have all his remaining upper teeth removed to be replaces by a denture and also a few mandibular extractions which will only leave him with his canines to hold a partial. These appliances are in process. In the meantime my father had a 2nd opinion and was told that it was too aggresive of a treatment, to not have th extracted because of the risk factors. We know my father has periodontal disease with major bone loss, and that eventually he'll loose these teeth. My question is, what are the risk factors in oral surgery and prosthetic appliances in a type 2 diabetic as opposed to waiting for each tooth to hurt and get infected?
  • Type 2 Diabetes here. The main concern my dentist had was whether or not my diabetes was under control, and that my blood pressure was normal (I also have hbp). He gave me an antibiotic prier to the extractions (8 teeth total, front lower).. and set in a lower (temp) denture the day of the extractions. We watched for any signs of infection, and everything went fine. I will add here, that the dentist did stick me with a pointed instrument both in front and behind my gums, to check how long I might bleed. Everything there was fine. How old is your father, and is his diabetes under control? Infected teeth can cause more complications.. you don't want to go there. Make sure his doctor knows what's going on. Good luck..


What promotes a healthy musculoskeletal system in old age?


  • Please addess risk factors for arthritis, osteoporosis, and falls.
  • Kay, this sounds as if it is an assignment for some class. As one gets older there are a number of things that happen to the musculoskeletal system. For most people, aging brings about a slowing of things. The physical jobs that were performed in younger days are now being done by someone else. People as they age prefer more sedentary types of jobs and with that comes a loss of muscular size and strength. This is called sarcopenia. So as one loses muscle mass weakness ensues. The weaker one is the more likely they are to avoid activities that will need muscular strength. This cycle has an effect on bones as well as muscles. Wolf's law states that bone is only as strong as the stress that is placed on it. So more sedentary people tend to have weaker bones. Women are more prone to osteoporosis than men but it is found in both. The weaker that one is the more likely they are to fall. The reason for this is that the ability to catch ones balance is dependent upon the strength of the muscles. Weak muscles mean more falls. As for the degenerative joint changes they are going to be in just about everyone. The question is the extent of these changes. A less active live style means that there is a better chance of adding weight on and this is a stress on the back, hips, and knees. The more weight the more stress and degeneration. Changes in posture take place and this leads to unnatural stresses on bones that also leads to degeneration. So what promotes a healthy lifestyle is to maintain an active lifestyle, keep ones weight down, do some resistive movements during the day, engage in activities that cause an interaction with others, and enjoy yourself.
