AbstractThis study was a description of the relationship between rural young Hispanic women's use of preventive health care services and their family structure and financial situation. The study also compared use of these services by rural young Hispanic women and rural young Anglo women. The relationship between use of preventive health care services by rural young women and age was also examined. Secondary data analysis was conducted on data collected during the initial survey from the original study, the Comprehensive Multilevel Level Nursing Practice for Rural Hispanics (F erketich, Phillips, & Verran, 1990). There was a statistically significant relationship between use of preventive health care services and age, with fewer blood pressure checks by women 18-29 years of age, than by women 30-40 years of age. However there was not a statistically significant relationship between use of preventive health services and family structure or financial status. Nor was there a statistically significant difference between Anglo and Hispanic young women in this study.
