Nativity and occupational class disparities in uninsurance and routine preventive care use among Asian Americans.
The researchers examined how nativity and occupational class among Asian Americans may explain disparities in uninsurance and use of routine preventive healthcare services such as routine physical checkup and dental/eye exams. They found that 35 to 40 percent of workers in blue-collar and service occupations reported no physical checkup or dental/eye exams in the past year.
