Description:

This study used a mixed-methods approach to explore the links between long-term ill health and dimensions of poverty across four ethnic ‘groups’: Bangladeshis, Pakistanis, White English (White British in the quantitative work) and Ghanaians (Black Africans in the quantitative work). Secondary analysis of national quantitative datasets (the Labour Force Survey and the Home Office Citizenship Survey) was combined with new detailed qualitative work (including locality-based rapid appraisal methods, 86 in-depth interviews and feedback workshops). The study investigates: the ways in which family, community and wider society affect responses to long-term ill health (Chapter 2); the ways in which individuals adapt to having a long-term condition (Chapter 3); and the links between long-term ill health and employment (Chapter 4), access to welfare benefits (Chapter 5) and social participation (Chapter 6). The relevance of ethnicity is explored, although not assumed, across each of these areas.
