A cross-sectional study design was used to investigate psychosocial effects in the population exposed to PCB contamination and remediation in Smithville, Ontario, Canada.
Psychosocial effects were defined as the complex of distress, dysfunction and disability manifested in a wide range of psychological social and behavioural outcomes as a consequence of actual or perceived contamination.
This paper describes the results of logistic regression analyses conducted to investigate the determinants of psychosocial effects of exposure.
The data come from an epidemiologic survey of a sample (N=272) of Smithville households within 3 km of the site, and a sample from a matched comparison community (N=263).
