There is some evidence that people from less developed countries who move to industrialized countries may become more vulnerable than the local population. For example, 19E levels are significantly higher in migrant Turks residing in Sweden than among similar Swedish residents, with levels declining with increasing periods of residence in the country (61).

However, such studies have often relied on patients' recall of ever having had eczema at a certain age rather than being based on a prospective study design. A commonly used measure is cumulative lifetime incidence, which is synonymous with lifetime prevalence, although the latter term is preferable when data have been collected retrospectively.
