Data linkage paper published in PLOS ONE today

  • November 15th, 2012  

    The paper, which utilised data linkage carried out by Gill Harper of geocreate that uniquely linked socio-sconomic, education and clinical data for the purpose of analysing the impact of asthma on school attainment for pupils in Tower Hamlets, London, is published today in the journal PLOS ONE. Working with the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health, Blizard Institute, Barts and The London Medical School, London and others, it was found that social adversity and ethnicity, but not asthma, are associated with poorer performance in national school examinations, and that policies should focus on these factors.
