Analysis Plan TitleInequalities in non-communicable diseases during COVID pandemic
Analysis Plan DescriptionThe COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted people’s lifestyles worldwide, and governments have implemented various policies to slow its spread. People with non-communicable diseases (NCDs) faced worse outcomes due to the highburden of morbidity and mortality, along with reduced access to longitudinal healthcare due to the focus on COVID-19. In addition, patterns of socioeconomic inequality (inequality among groups by class, gender, education, and country of residence) have underpinned NCDs outcomes as risk factors and disease outcomes. Different studies have shown this evidence on a national scale in different years. We utilize the available global survey data to study this pattern on a global scale. We aim to explore associations between socioeconomic factors and NCDs through logistic regression models stratified by gender and further use the Concentration Index to determine NCDs inequality among countries (classified by Socio-demographic index (SDI)) by sex, education, employment status, income, parental status, area of residence and annual household income.
