Abstract

ROBLES-ORTEGA, Humbelina et al. Tobacco and alcohol comsumption in a sample eviction process. Acción psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.13, n.1, pp.41-52. ISSN 2255-1271.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5944/ap.13.1.17416.

Introduction:

In Spain, the current economic crisis has led to an unfortunate phenomenon little known until now: the eviction process. The aim was to evaluate unhealthy habits such as consumption of tobacco and alcohol in a group of Granada as at risk of losing their residence.

Methods:

Participated 205 adult undergoing an eviction process from their homes (122 women and 83 men) who were given the items of health-related habits of the Andalusian Health Survey 2011. All participants were linked to the Platform Affected by Mortgage, Stop Desahucios of Granada.

Results:

Consumption of tobacco: observe higher percentage of daily smokers among men (54.22 %), people who live as a couple and workers. People who have entered the judicial process smoke more cigarettes per day (t = 1944, p = .055) and perceived an increase in the consumption of tobacco from the process of eviction. (χ2 = 8.494, p = .037). Consumption of alcohol: find higher percentage in men (χ2 = 10.005, p = .019) and in people who do not live with a partner (χ2 = 8.553, p = .036); men perceive a greater increase in alcohol consumption due to the eviction process (χ2 = 20.375, p = .000).

Conclusions:

The eviction process negatively affects health-related habits and should therefore be prioritized in Public Health policies as a population at risk.
