  • Unemployment, public-sector healthcare spending and stomach cancer mortality in the European Union, 1981-2009. (ox.ac.uk)
  • OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine the association between changes in unemployment, healthcare spending and stomach cancer mortality. (ox.ac.uk)
  • METHODS: Multivariate regression analysis was used to assess how changes in unemployment and public-sector expenditure on healthcare (PSEH) varied with stomach cancer mortality in 25 member states of the European Union from 1981 to 2009. (ox.ac.uk)
  • CONCLUSION: Increases in unemployment are associated with a significant increase in stomach cancer mortality. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Stomach cancer mortality is also affected by public-sector healthcare spending. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Initiatives that bolster employment and maintain public-sector healthcare expenditure may help to minimize increases in stomach cancer mortality during economic downturns. (ox.ac.uk)
