Journal article, 2015

© 2015 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg Background: In the data report 2014, the German Maternal Convalescence Movement (Müttergenesungswerk) identified a possible discrimination against mothers with a low level of education in health convalescent treatment allocation. Objective: The question whether this discrimination is supported by data is investigated. Material and methods: Based on a special analysis of the microcensus (Statistisches Bundesamt), the percentage of the education level of all economically active mothers with a child under the age of 10 years is compared with the corresponding percentages of health convalescent treatment participants. Results: No discrimination against mothers with a low level of education in health convalescent treatment allocation was found in this data set.
