Resumen

BRAVERMAN-BRONSTEIN, Ariela et al. Population profiles associated with severe functional difficulties and disability among 5-17 years-old children in México. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2017, vol.59, n.4, pp.370-379. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/8494.

Objectives:

To report the prevalence of severe functional difficulties and disability (SFD) in a nationally representative sample of children ages 5 to 17 in Mexico, to identify factors associated with SFD, and population profiles predictive of SFD.

Materials and methods:

Using data from the National Survey on Children and Women we estimated prevalence and 95% confidence intervals of SFD and risk factors. We fitted bivariate and multivariate logistic regression models. We then examined which combinations of the sociodemographic factors best predicted SFD.

Results:

The prevalence of SFD was 11.2%. The most prevalent SFD were on the socioemotional dimension (8.3%). The associated risk factors in the three dimensions were: living in a poor household, being a boy, having a mother with basic education or less, and non-indigenous background or living in an urban area.

Conclusions:

Identifying groups of the population at higher risk for SFD provides useful information for targeted intervention implementation.
