Which ethnic groups have the poorest health?

Published: 27 Aug 2015
ISBN:
9781785445934

This report examines differences in the health of ethnic groups in Scotland and uses census health data to identify variations between groups. The analysis employs age-standardised rates to compare people of similar age, which avoids the often misleading direct comparisons between populations with very different age structures.
