  1. Stepwise logistic regression models; psychiatric disorder as an outcome. Modelled by forward entry if significant to a p < 0.2 level. Variables entered including age, gender, discrimination score, networks as binary variables using median split (relatives, friendship and confiding and emotional relationships), physical health using median split on the SF12, employment in the UK (yes/no), on benefits (job seekers' allowance, or income support, marital state (single, married, sep/widowed/divorced), legal status (asylum seeker/refugee status), tenure (temporary/permanent), period living in the UK, index of multiple deprivation of the current address and trauma history (yes/no).
