|Issue Date:||16-Nov-2022||Date:||2022||Publication information:||American journal of respiratory and critical care medicine 2023-03-15; 207(6)||Abstract:||The use of self-reported race/ethnicity to interpret lung function measurements has historically assumed that the observed differences in lung function between racial and ethnic group were due to thoracic cavity size differences relative to standing height. Very few studies have considered the influence of environmental and social determinants on pulmonary function. Consequently, the use of race and ethnicity specific reference equations may further marginalize disadvantaged populations.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/31697||DOI:||10.1164/rccm.202205-0963OC||ORCID:||0000-0003-3009-5867
