TNO Kwaliteit van Leven Publication year 2007 Abstract This study aimed to identify and explain differences in health-related quality of life (QoL) between immigrant and non-immigrant children with asthma. In 274 children (7-17 years of age) generic and asthma-related QoL were assessed. The association between ethnicity and QoL was studied in linear regression model analyses. For the asthma-related QoL, unadjusted analyses showed significant ethnic differences. The non-immigrant children had the highest scores, which implies a better QoL. After adjusting for asthma control and socioeconomic status (SES), ethnic differences disappeared. These results suggest that immigrant children have a similar QoL to that of non-immigrant children from a comparable SES, when their asthma is under control. Copyright © 2007 Informa Healthcare.
