Jquery how to find a string in the source code of a page?

I two identical pages that are generated by my CMS when I check the sourcecode I see there is ONLY one difference.

Page a.html
<script type='text/javascript'>
/* <![CDATA[ */
var userSettings = {"url":"\/","uid":"2"}/* ]]> */

Page b.html
<script type='text/javascript'>
/* <![CDATA[ */
var userSettings = {"url":"\/","uid":"5"}/* ]]> */

I need to get jQuery to identify on pageload which page has the string "uid":"5" in it's sourcecode.
A clue: this code is found in the <head> of the page.

How do I do this?

thanks in advance
