Abstract

A prospective study was carried out in the author's practice at the Lee Bank Health Centre, Birmingham by the use of self and interviewer administered questionnaires and health diaries to test two hypotheses. Firstly, that in families registered and living in the Inner City of Birmingham the morbidity reported to the General Practitioners by mothers and children of one-parent families was greater than that reported by the mothers and children of married families ("reported morbidity"). Secondly, that there were greater numbers of occasions over a period of a month that one-parent mothers perceived themselves or their children to be ill than married mothers and their children ("unreported morbidity").
