Table 6 Prevalence and proportion of ill health and personal control by population segment (%‘s, weighted a)

From: The cumulation of ill health and low agency in socially excluded city dwellers in the Netherlands: how to better identify high-risk/high-need population segments with public health survey data

  SE segment SE + low labour market segment
Prevalence Proportionb Prevalence Proportionb

 Diabetes 13.8 20.2 12.3 35.0
 High blood pressure 21.4 15.5 20.3 28.4

Self-rated health fair or poor 64.4 24.4 59.3 43.3
Anxiety and depression symptoms 42.4 47.5 31.5 67.2
Low personal control 48.6 41.7 35.5 60.4
  1. a Sampling weights were calculated by Statistics Netherlands based on a linear model with 9 sociodemographic variables and their interaction terms [28]
  2. b The proportion of the population with the condition in question, that falls within this segment. For example row 1 Diabetes: of the 174,134 socially excluded adults 24,030 or 13.8% reported diabetes. The socially excluded population segment thus accounted for 20.2% of all 118,965 diabetes cases (24,030/118,965)
