Behavioural Determinants of Obesity (Physical Activity, Sedentarism and Diet) according to Socioeconomic Position in Chile: Protocol for a Systematic Review

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)

Abstract

Obesity is a major public health problem in Chile, with 70% of people aged over 15 years being overweight or obese. The prevalence of obesity in Chile is highest among the most socioeconomically disadvantaged groups. The reasons underpinning socioeconomic gradients in obesity such as, differences in obesity-related behaviours like physical activity, sedentary behaviours and diet, are unclear but could provide targets for intervention. Therefore, the aim of this review is to examine associations of socioeconomic position (SEP) with physical activity, sedentarism and diet in Chile.
Electronic searches will be conducted using MEDLINE, Scopus, PsycINFO, Web of Sciences and LILACS. We will supplement database searches with grey literature, websites and hand-searching references. We will include observational studies that contain at least one obesity-related behaviour measure (physical activity, sedentarism and/or diet), compares at least two SEP groups and includes data from individuals of any age and gender residing in Chile. Studies in English and Spanish will be included. Study screening, data extraction and quality appraisal will be conducted by two independent reviewers and any disagreement will be settled with the remaining authors. Quality assessment will be undertaken by adapting the Newcastle Ottawa Quality Assessment Scale for cohort and cross-sectional studies.
This review will provide evidence on the differences in obesity-related behaviours (physical activity, sedentarism and diet) among different socioeconomic groups in Chile. Findings will be used to inform public health strategies aiming to reduce the inequalities in the prevalence of obesity in Chile.
