summary of findings
Summary of Findings
  • 10% of clients screened were Hepatitis B antigen positive, which varied btwn AAPI subgroups.
  • Married clients have higher carrier rates (10.3%) than unmarried clients (8.2%).
  • Males (13%) are twice as likely to be infected with HBV as females (7%).
  • The age group most at risk for chronic HBV infection is 18 to 45 years for this group
summary of findings cont

research limitation
Research Limitation

- Self reported data

  • Convenient sampling, not random selection
  • Missing data
  • Small population size in some communities (eg. Lao)
