abstract
An increasing amount of studies report evidence for ethnic inequalities in depression. These show the great impact of socio-economic factors and suggest ethnic discrimination as another risk factor. However, this research is restricted to mainly American en British studies, whereas in continental Europe very little is known on this subject. Moreover, research on ethnic disparities in health has ignored the impact of the environment for too long. Using data from the third wave of the European Social Survey, a multilevel analysis was performed for the adult population aged 18 to 65 (N= 30 969) of 23 European countries. The results show that ethnic minorities do experience more depressive feelings in 10 countries. Moreover, their socio-economic position and the experience of ethnic discrimination are important risk factors. In addition, there are substantial country-level differences in depression. The present study is the first to investigate ethnic inequalities in depression for the European population.
