Moderating Effects of Socio-Demographic Factors in Associations Between Acculturation and Dietary and Physical Activity Behaviours: a Study of Australian Residents Born in Sub-Saharan Africa

This report examined the socioeconomic, age, length of residence in Australia, place of residence before immigration, Australian state of residence, employment status, and income levels. Acculturation was measured by the preservation of heritage and participation in host country culture. Fruit/vegetables/fibre intake and cultural involvement among those with shorter duration of residence in Australia, as well as those who lived in urban areas before immigration were discovered. Among younger participants, physical fitness was highly associated with cultural stability. The findings, while acknowledging that these relationships need to be investigated further using a larger sample size, provide the first evidence on the relationship between acculturation and socioeconomic variables in determining health behaviors in this population.

The Influence of Asian Subgroup and Acculturation on Colorectal Cancer Screening Knowledge and Attitudes Among Chinese and Korean Americans

Understanding how knowledge and attitudes about colorectal cancer screening in Asian immigrants differs among Asian immigrants is critical for designing targeted health services aimed at preventing and treating CRC in this large population. This report explores how Asian subgroups and acculturation are linked to CRC knowledge and attitudes among Chinese and Korean immigrants in the United States. Higher socioeconomic status was linked to higher CRC knowledge, according to reports, and socioeconomic status explained more of the variance in CRC knowledge than acculturation variables. According to the results, in-language initiatives aimed at raising CRC awareness and capitalizing on screening attitudes can help eliminate CRC screening inequalities based on socioeconomic status and country of origin. We discuss the potential for future actions to raise CRC screening uptake among Chinese and Korean immigrants in the United States.

Acculturation Stress, Age at Immigration, and Employment Status as Predictors of Sleep Among Latinx Immigrants

Sleep is essential for physical and mental stability. Latinx people are likely to have poor sleep and related health conditions, contributing to health inequalities. A lack of study into the reasons that lead to poor sleep among Latinx immigrants is also present. The present research sought to investigate the link between demographic variables, migration-related factors, and Acculturation stress, and sleep, as well as identify factors that either attenuate or elevate the connection between acculturation stress and sleep among Latinx immigrants in the United States South, an immigrant-hostile area that is still understudied. As moderators of the link between acculturation stress and sleep, job status and age at immigration were investigated. The relationship between acculturation stress and sleep quality has deteriorated, with difficulty falling asleep. Reducing acculturation stress is a significant intervention focus, particularly for recent Latinx immigrants.

Social Needs and Acculturation as Predictors of Emotional Problems and Perceived Stress Among Latinx Mothers with Low Income

In a previous study, we analyzed baseline survey results from 455 Latinx mothers. Mothers in low-income Latinx mothers who have a high social demand are at a higher risk of emotional disturbances and anxiety. One way to improve health outcomes may be integrated social service and mental health care models. More research is required to determine how clinical settings can use unique cultural safeguarding characteristics to address Latinx mothers's social and emotional wellbeing.

The Role of Ethnic Community Social Capital in the Association between Acculturation and Psychological Distress among Older Korean Americans

According to studies, the emotional health risks associated with low acculturation could be exacerbated if older immigrants have a poor sense of cohesion in their ethnic groups or have negative interactions with ethnic community members.

Impact of Migration and Acculturation on Turkish Men Who Have Sex with Men in Germany: Results from the 2010 European MSM Internet Survey

Using data from the European MSM Internet Survey, we will investigate the effects of migration and acculturation of Turkish men who have sex with men to Germany, including circumcision status, internalized homonegativity, HIV/STI awareness, sexual orientation, HIV-testing, and sexual habits of Turkish men and acculturation. MSM born and residing in Germany, MSM born and residing in Germany, MSM completed the questionnaire in German, MSM born in Germany, MSM born in Turkey, or whose parents were born in Turkey, and MSM who were born in Germany and living in Turkey. Similar strong results were obtained regarding sexual HIV risk behavior in adolescents. Integration includes cultural aspects and integration into a more homophobic gay environment, as well as sexual HIV risk behavior.
