Studies on children and adults combined suggest higher mortality rates for autistic than other people, but few report mortality rates for autistic children. In addition, past studies may not be representative of the current generation of children diagnosed with autism. We examined mortality in children using data from Scotland's annual pupil…

Child mortality has become a prominent public health issue in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

Background: Overweight/obesity and poor physical fitness are two prevalent lifestyle-related problems in older adults with intellectual disabilities, which each require a different approach.

Barban, N.; de Luna, X.; Lundholm, E.; Svensson, I.; Billari, F. C. – Sociological Methods & Research, 2020
In this article, we combine the extensive literature on the analysis of life-course trajectories as sequences with the literature on causal inference and propose a new matching approach to investigate the causal effect of the timing of life-course events on subsequent outcomes. Our matching approach takes into account pre-event confounders that…

Clark, Ginerva A.; Humphries, Marisha L.; Perez, Jessica; Udoetuk, Stella; Bhatt, Kruti; Domingo, Jennifer P.; Garcia, Megan; Daubenmire, Patrick L.; Mansuri, Nazminbano; King, Maripat – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Knowledge of functional groups provides students with a language for organic chemistry. However, students in a health science chemistry course do not plan to be synthetic organic chemists and, therefore, need examples of how functional group chemistry is relevant to their vocational goals. We have developed a lab to demonstrate how simple…

Lee, Sunghee; McClain, Colleen; Behr, Dorothée; Meitinger, Katharina – Field Methods, 2020
Self-rated health (SRH) and subjective life expectancy (SLE) are widely used for understanding health and predicting mortality. However, what these items measure remains unclear, due to the lack of conceptual frameworks. We administered a web survey across the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, and Mexico. The questionnaire included SRH…

As we have seen from the current COVID-19 pandemic, misconceptions concerning viruses can lead to disease spread and panic. Therefore, it is imperative to determine misconceptions held concerning epidemics and pandemics. One virus that warrants study of misconceptions, albeit given limited attention in the West, is the Ebola virus. An assessment…

Leive, Adam; Ruhm, Christopher J. – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2020
We examine whether the least educated population groups experienced the worst mortality trends during the 21st century by measuring changes in mortality across education quartiles. We document sharply differing gender patterns. Among women, mortality trends improved fairly monotonically with education. Conversely, male trends for the lowest three…

The spread of COVID-19, which happens easily in a campus setting, raises critical questions about what educational institutions can and should do.

Stolow, Jeni A.; Moses, Lina M.; Lederer, Alyssa M.; Carter, Rebecca – Health Education & Behavior, 2020
As health professionals develop health communication for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we implore that these communication approaches do not include fear appeals. Fear appeals, also known as scare tactics, have been widely used to promote recommended preventive behaviors. We contend that unintended negative outcomes can result from fear…

Henry, Brandy F. – Health Education & Behavior, 2020
Incarcerated people are at disproportionately high risk of contracting COVID-19. Prisons are epicenters for COVID-19 transmission, including to the community. High rates of preexisting health conditions, limited access to quality health care, and inability to social distance make it impossible to reduce the impact of COVID-19 in prisons. Due to a…
