Overview

The purpose of this investigation is to examine disparities between Hispanic and non-Hispanic whites with type 2 diabetes while using socioeconomic status, lifestyle, and health care utilization as a means of explaining these disparities. The questions that will guide the project are as follows: (1) does equal socioeconomic status among Hispanic and non-Hispanic whites mean that there are equal rates of type 2 diabetes? (2) Do Hispanic and non-Hispanic whites with equal lifestyle factors have the same rates of type 2 diabetes? (3) And do Hispanic and non-Hispanic whites with equal access to health care have equal rates of type 2 diabetes? A secondary analysis of the data from the 2004 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) was used to investigate whether primary causes of the disparities in type 2 diabetes can be explained when socioeconomic status, lifestyle, and health care utilization are equal among Hispanic and non-Hispanic whites. Throughout the literature it was discovered that socioeconomic status was a major predictor of many health outcomes with Type 2 diabetes being no exception. Although one's lifestyle and having access to health care can contribute to one's well being it did not fully explain the differences in rates of type 2 diabetes between Hispanic and non-Hispanic whites. For this thesis, socioeconomic status explained a majority of the differences between Hispanic and non-Hispanic whites in terms of type 2 diabetes.
