  1. Fulltext. Homicide risk among immigrants in California, 1970 through 1992.

    Article - En anglais


    According to the death cerfiticates of the 65 510 California residents who died of homicide from 1970 through 1992, foreign-born persons are overrepresented in the homicides of California residents.

    Analysis of homicide data for 15-to 34-year-olds (n=38 774), who account for a majority of all homicide victims, indicated that immigrant-to-nonimmigrant risk patterns differed by ethnicity and across time.

    During the 23-year study period, foreign-born Whites, Hispanics, and Asians and others were at significantly higher risk and foreign-born Blacks were at a statistically similar risk of homicide compared with their US-born counterparts (risk ratio=2.12,1.24,1.72, and 0.60, respectively).
