Associations among political voting preference, high-risk health status, and preventative behaviors for COVID-19. Thalia Porteny, Laura Corlin, Jennifer D. Allen, Kyle Monahan, Andrea Acevedo, Thomas J. Stopka, Peter Levine, Keren Ladin. Public Health, February 2022.

This study of political preference, level of Covid risk, and level of Covid prevention behavior found that individual preventative behavior was associated with political preference but not the risk of severe Covid.

Why are Some People Reluctant to be Vaccinated for COVID-19? A Cross-Sectional Survey among U.S. Adults in May-June 2020. Jennifer Allen, Wenhui Feng, Laura Corlin, Thalia Porteny, Andrea Acevedo, Deborah Schildkraut, Erin King, Keren Ladin, Quiang Fu, Thomas J. Stopka. Preventive Medicine Reports, July 2021.

Beliefs regarding personal responsibility, public health authority, vaccine safety, and risk exposure among others can all play a part in vaccine reluctance according to this study.

Assessing Equity in Health, Wealth, and Civic Engagement: A Nationally Representative Survey, United States, 2020. Thomas J. Stopka, Wenhui Feng, Laura Corlin, Erin King, Jayanthi Mistry, Wendy Mansfield, Ying Wang, Peter Levine, Jennifer D. Allen. International Journal for Equity in Health, January 2022

We developed a conceptual framework to guide our inquiry of equity across health, wealth, and civic engagement domains. Using structural equation modeling, we developed latent constructs for wealth and civic engagement, to assess associations with a measured health variable. We found significant associations among key equity domains.
