In addition to level of HHR expenditures, individual-level race/ethnicity, that is, white, Hispanic, black, and Asian, was included (Bach et al.
We assessed associations between HHR expenditures and sociodemographic and clinical variables with t-tests for continuous variables and chi-square tests for categorical variables.
We included an interaction term between racial/ethnic group and HHR expenditure level to determine whether racial/ethnic differences varied by HHR expenditure level.
Recommended improvements to the HHRS and challenges of implementing the HHRS will be discussed.
The visual assessment evaluates 29 hazard categories identified in the HHRS (see Table 1 for a complete list of hazards), of which 6 were excluded from analyses because they were not adequately assessed during the healthy homes inspections.
The number of hazards was determined by 1) the dichotomous presence or absence of the 23 individual HHRS hazards identified in a home and 2) the total number of instances of each hazard identified throughout a home.
The HHR is on what's known as the GM "Delta" platform.
Danowski points out that given the architecture of the HHR, with its comparatively high roof and rear cargo area contiguous with the passenger compartment, the opportunities for sound to echo ("There's a cave back there," he jokes) are high, so they did several things.
The HHR represents an example of some clever "borrowing" of components from other GM vehicles.
