answer: gets 181 hits (21 of them free online) for the search: sexism and health and determinants; and 199 hits (24 free full text) for: racism and health and determinants. Pubmed is a highly technical and scholarly database, and most of its results will not link you to full text unless you access it at a large medical or very large academic library - via a proxy or "link resolver" that takes you to any journal that the library subscribes to. For example, at University of Maryland, our "Researchport" lets you find Pubmed "By database name", so that when you click on a title in your search results list, the full abstract record has a bright yellow "Find it" button that links you to online if we subscribe, or print if that is all we have, or Interlibrary Loan if we don't get the journal in any format.

ANSWER: Sexism in reality television statistics


To get free sites on the Web, you can try for state as well as federal websites, reports, studies, hearings, etc. Possible searches would include: "reality tv" sexist (3 hits), "reality tv" sexism (2 hits); and "reality shows" profit* (50 hits). USAsearch seems to be a bit more predictable with the * (truncation) than Google is. Compare Google's only 44 hits for: "reality shows" profit* site:gov but 70 for "reality shows" profitability site:gov

You can also use site:edu to try to get more "official" or at least better documented information. Google gets at least 345 unique hits for "reality shows" profitability trends site:edu and 14 for "reality shows" "average revenue" site:edu. These site:edu,, sites may also have a lot more research on sociological issues such as sexism, racism, or stereotypes in general. For example, "reality shows" sexist site:edu gets 137 unique hits in Google. We do have to beware that "site:edu" does not guarantee scholarship. Many students and staff are quite free to have their own blogs or personal websites hosted on a university server, and "peer review" is definitely not the rule for such sites.
