Caratteristiche socio-economiche come confondenti e modificatori delle misure d’effetto negli studi epidemiologici - In an epidemiological study quantitative data are collected and analyzed to estimate the effect of a determinant on the disease occurrence, taking into account the possible confounding effect of other characteristics that may influence the occurrence of the disease, and also to evaluate whether the effect varies according to the presence or level of a third factor (effect modification). In this paper we analyse the role of Socio-Economic Position as both a confounder and a modifier of the effect of other factors on the health status, the occurrence of diseases, the access to services and the appropriateness of care. Keywords: socio-economic position, counfounding, effect modification,epidemiological study, measure of effect, health status. Parole chiave: caratteristiche socio-economiche, confondimento, modificazione dell’effetto, studio epidemiologico, misura dell’effetto, stato di salute.
