Abstract (Summary)

This secondary date analysis utilized pre-existing date from the 2009 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) to explore associations between relationship between self-reported Latino or Hispanic and internalizing and externalizing behaviors. The study also analyzed the relationship between currently taking daily prescription medication to control asthma and internalizing and externalizing behaviors. In addition, it examined the relationship between gender and internalizing and externalizing behaviors as well as self-reported Latino or Hispanic and asthma control. Lastly, the study analyzed the relationship between ages 4 to 6 and internalizing and externalizing behaviors. The study sample consisted of 200 children in California households, 4 to 6 years old. The findings revealed that a higher percent of parents did not have concerns about their children's internalizing behaviors. The findings also showed that the majority of parents with 6 year olds, expressed concerns about externalizing behaviors.
