Additionally, these figures may be this high, due to women being more likely to go to the doctor when there is something wrong with their health, whereas men will put off going to the doctors. The graph below, taken from The Daily Mail, shows ‘The Percentage of Population Using Mental Health Medication’ in America, which supports the argument that women are more likely to develop a mental health disorder compared to men. P3 P3 P3 P3 Those who are in a higher social status or social class, tend to live longer than those who are in the working class, or lower class. According to Equality Human Rights (2014), chapter 6 states that ‘Men in the highest socio-economic class can expect to live around 7 years longer than men in the lower groups. For women, the gap is the same.’ An argument for this set of statistics may be that those in a high social class can afford private healthcare, therefore having access to top medical
Over the last century, there has been a decline in premature deaths throughout developed countries (Alder et al, 2009). Life expectancy has grown in the United Kingdom from 45 for females and 49 for males In 1901 and in more recent times to 75 years for male and 80 years for female in 1999 (Hicks and Ellen;1999). Not everywhere is experiencing longevity of life the average life expectancy in Zimbabwe is 35.5 (Stibich, 2009).The ONS (2009) have suggested that males and females in the UK could expect to live to 77.44 and 81.65 years respectively. The same report also highlighted the gap between the genders after surviving to 65 years. This is illustrated in the diagram below.
In recent years, the diagnoses of STDs in older adults have sky rocketed. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reportings of syphilis and chlamydia among those 55 and over has risen 43% between 2005 and 2009. Recent CDC statistics have also shown that the number of newly diagnosed Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infections is increasing faster in older adults than in people 40 and under. Karlovsky, Lebed & Mydlo (2004) believe that HIV and AIDs data may underestimate the incidence and prevalence of such diseases due to the fact that previous research excluded participants from the elderly population. However, according to Hillman (2008) approximately 12% to 20% of new cases of HIV and AIDs occur among men and women 65 and over.
Women - less than 14 units/ less than 2 to 3 units a day. ½ pint of ordinary strength beer or cider / small glass of wine / pub measure of spirits Number of people dying from excess alcohol in the UK; Each year 5,000 to 10,000 people die prematurely from alcohol abuse. The more alcohol a population consumes the more alcohol-related damage will result, and consumption has been increasing steadily in England since the second world war. Deaths from liver cirrhosis relate closely to heavy drinking. Deaths linked to cirrhosis and related diseases of the liver rose by 121% for men and 68% for women between 1980-82 and 2000, according to the Office for National Statistics.
You may also be more likely to binge drink if you are feeling peer pressure to do so. Or, you may be feeling anxious or socially awkward, for example at a party, and you may binge drink with the aim to reduce those feelings. 14 per cent of men and 11 per cent of women drink every day Half of Britain's young adults first got drunk before the age of 15. liver disease could become one of the biggest killers as a result of the country's binge drinking culture. 48 per cent of those in the 18 to 24 age group were between the ages of 13 and 15 when they first got drunk, while 6 per cent were aged under 12. It also found that 14 per cent of men and 11 per cent of women drink every day and 6 per cent of men drink more than a week's recommended alcohol intake in one night.
(Burt VL, Whelton P, Roccella EJ, et al, 1995) In this study I found that women have higher odds of reporting hypertension than do men, regardless of their race/ethnicity. Women are more likely to access the medical system and live longer than men. Thus, it is possible that women are more likely to be aware of their hypertension status because of their contacts with physicians. Evidence suggests that the prevalence of hypertension decreases as education increases among non-Hispanic Blacks and Whites, but not among Mexican Americans. (Borrell LN, 2006) Compared with non-Hispanic Whites, non-Hispanic Blacks regardless of their education were more likely to report hypertension, with those with a college degree or more having the greater odds.
There are a lot of gender differences in patterns of crime, from which gender commit more crime to which crimes each gender commits more of. In this essay I will be giving explanations on why this different patterns in crime for gender happen. Men have a higher crime rate than women but the gap in this crime rate is slowly closing in recent years. Some Sociobiologists have the explanation that it is biological for the reason women are less likely to commit crimes than men. They argue that women have a more natural desire to be caring and this does not correspond to the values of crime, so they are less likely to offend due to them not having the nature to commit the crime.
This shows that women’s dietary intakes are much less than men’s. However, it is proven that women are more than likely to visit their doctors for health problems whereas men are proven to rarely visit te doctors. In relation to this, there are more women that won’t visit there local gp fi the person is male. One of the major problems we hold in our society today is that women’s health is advertised more than men’s health, For example, you are more than likely to an advert on the TV for ‘Check your Breasts’ rather than men’s adverts trying to convince men to go to the doctors to be checked for prostate cancer. Available Infrastructure: What is available infrastructure?
Another reason due to the high birth rate in countries such as Ethiopia is the lack of use of contraceptives. Stage 3 changes less than stage 2 does from stage 1, as the population continues to increase rapidly, but the death rate continues to fall, but finally the birth rate begins to decline alongside it. Stage 3 can be seen in countries such as India, and the USA (surprisingly) as families start to realise that having more children is more of a burden than a form of support, and they don’t need to have as many children as very few are dying in childbirth. The continuing decline in the death rate is due
She doesn't believe that the 50's should be taken 'literally' because from the 50's there were changes in values that caused racism and sexism discrimination against women. Many of the existing social problems could have been avoided or ignored. Racial conflict was intense in many places, but many suburbs were exclusively white. The poverty rate was higher than today, but at least it was falling. Teenagers had more babies than they do now, but access to good jobs-even with only a high school education-enabled young men to marry their pregnant girlfriends.
