Assessing chances of hospital admission in preschool children*: Critical evaluation

By M. E. J. Wadsworth and S. Morris

Abstract

In discussing social class differentials in childhood mortality and morbidity a recent report on the British child health services suggests that it is possible to identify children at risk, and a government publication has indicated that health visitors (community nurses) could do this. The National Survey of Health and Development, a longitudinal study of over 5000 children regularly investigated from birth so far to age 31 years, gives an opportunity to test the usefulness of these propositions, since it has complete illness records of the study population and health visitors' assessments of their home circumstances, maternal care, and use of child welfare services
