Sociodemographic Factors and Coping with Pediatric Asthma
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to examine the associations among sociodemographic factors (SES, parent language, race/ethnicity) and coping in children with asthma, and to examine if asthma-related stress accounts for this relationship. Correlational analyses were used to examine the association among SES variables, parent language, and coping, and t-tests were used to examine if coping differed by child race/ethnicity. Regression analyses examined if stress accounted for the associations between sociodemographic variables and coping. Results indicated that asthma-related stress explained the association between income and primary control coping, and between income and secondary control coping.
