    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    Illinois vital records for 1982/1983 and US census income data for 1980 were analyzed to ascertain the relationship of income incongruity, race, and very low birth-weight.

    Methods

    Positive income incongruity was considered present when study infants resided in wealthier neighborhoods than non-Latino Whites at the same level of parental education attainment and marital status.

    Results

    The odds ratios of very low birthweight for African Americans (n=44 266) and Whites (n=27 139) who experienced positive income incongruity were 0.7 (95% confidence interval [CI]=0.5,0.9) and 0.6 (95% CI=0.5,0.9), respectively.

    Conclusions

    Positive income incongruity is associated with lower race-specific rates of very low birthweight.
