Senior, M. L. and New, S. J. and Gatrell, Tony and Francis, B. J. (1993) Geographic influences on the uptake of infant immunisations: 2: disaggregate analyses. Environment and Planning A, 25 (4). pp. 467-479.Full text not available from this repository.
This is the second of two papers in which the effects of transport, time - space, and gender-role constraints on the uptake of immunisation are assessed statistically. In the first paper, it was concluded that aggregate analyses, conducted solely at the District Health Authority level, provide unreliable explanations of uptake. In this paper, individual-level analyses are described in which information from interviews with mothers resident in the districts of Salford and Lancaster is used. Childcare commitments, illness, educational attainment, and possibly lone-parent status are found to be significant determinants of immunisation uptake. A future research focus is given.
