Abstract:
Study examined gender and racial and ethnic differences in subjective well-being, community participation, and self-reported general health ratings among 4 groups of participants with spinal cord injury: whites, African American, American Indians, and Hispanics. About 40 percent of the total sample was female. Participants completed measures of subjective well-being, participation, and health behaviors outcomes. Race and ethnicity were much more highly correlated with the study outcomes than was gender. Racial and ethnic differences in outcomes related to health were less substantial than those related to subjective well-being. Few gender differences were found, however, women showed greater negative affect and depression, but had higher interpersonal relation scores.
