IBARRA SALA, Ana María; INDA ARAGON, José; FERNANDEZ LARREA, Niurys  y  BAEZ DUENAS, Rosa María. Percepción de riesgos en una comunidad insalubre. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.5, pp.436-441. ISSN 0864-2125.

An investigation on risk perception was made at "La Dionisia" insalubrious neighborhood of the "19 de Abril" health area belonging to Plaza de la Revolución municipality. A questionnarie including diverse risks was applied and a scale of semantic differential with 4 gradations (very risky, risky, little risky and riskless) was used. Each of them was given a value from 4 to 1 points.These risks were grouped in 3 categories: environmental, psychosocial and related to health. The analyses of correlation and of multiple regression were used to determine variables influencing on every risk object of study. It was concluded that the perception among the different risk groups showed no differences, that risk perception was higher when the individuals had children under 13 and that, in general, the child variable proved to be that with the highest influence on all the studied types of risks
