Functional somatic symptoms: a cross-ethnic comparison.

Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York.


Type, distribution, and comorbidity of functional somatic symptoms were examined in four community samples, three Hispanic and one non-Hispanic white. Important intergroup and intragroup differences between Hispanic and non-Hispanic white groups were identified. Of the four groups, Puerto Rican respondents reported the highest level of somatic symptoms; this finding was apparently independent of sociodemographic factors.
