Lee, Sunghee; Fredriksen-Goldsen, Karen I.; McClain, Colleen; Kim, Hyun-Jun; Suzer-Gurtekin, Z. Tuba – Field Methods, 2018
One of the implicit assumptions in survey research is lower response rates by sexual minorities than by nonminorities. With rapidly changing public attitudes toward same-sex marriage, we reconsider this assumption. We used data from the 2013 and 2014 National Health Interview Survey that include contact history data for all sample families as well…

Landes, Scott D. – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2017
On average, adults with intellectual disability (ID) have higher mortality risk than their peers in the general population. However, the effect of age on this mortality disadvantage has received minimal attention. Using data from the 1986-2011 National Health Interview Survey-Linked Mortality Files (NHIS-LMF), discrete time hazard models were used…

Blumberg, Stephen J.; Clarke, Tainya C.; Blackwell, Debra L. – National Center for Health Statistics, 2016
Compared with white Americans, persons of other races in the United States are less likely to have access to and receive needed mental health care (1-4). Few studies, however, have explored such disparities specifically among men. Mental health and treatment have traditionally received less attention for men than women, perhaps because men are…

People with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) face higher levels of poverty than others, which can lead to concerns regarding areas of well-being, such as food security.

MacInnes, Maryhelen; Broman, Clifford L. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2013
It is well established that children and adolescents with learning disabilities are more likely to experience depressed mood than are their peers.

Bassok, Daphna; Reardon, Sean F. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2013

We find that between 4% and 5.5% of children delay kindergarten, a lower number than typically reported in popular and academic accounts. Male, White, and high-SES children are most likely…
