Abstract

To study the role of parental employment status as an indicator of socioeconomic status in the origin of neural-tube defects and regarding the use of periconceptional folic acid/multivitamin supplementation. 1,202 cases with neural-tube defects, 38, 151 healthy controls without any defects and 22, 475 patient controls with other defects were compared in the population-based data set of the Hungarian Case-Control Surveillance for Congenital Abnormalities, between 1980-1996. Conclusion: A higher maternal education level goes together with a higher proportion of periconceptional folic acid supplementation. The occurrence of neural tube defects shows only a slight socioeconomic dependence in the mothers under comparison with the population control group. However, the patient control group had the lowest socio-economic status. In addition, fathers of the neural-tube defect cases had a better socio-economic status as compared to the fathers of the two control groups.
