    Article - En anglais

    This descriptive study assessed age effects on perinatal use of alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine among African-American and white women.

    Data were derived from the California Perinatal Exposure Study, relying on a statistical probability sample (n=29,494) of women who underwent anonymous urine toxicology screening in birthing hospitals.

    The central hypothesis was that there would be no difference in age effects on drug use among white and African-American women.

    Marital status and payment source were used as risk factors in order to create detailed age-risk profiles for both racial-ethnic groups.

    Logistic regression analyses were used and findings indicated that cocaine use peaked in early adulthood for whites and in mid-adulthood for African Americans who had higher prevalence levels with the same or fewer risk factors as whites.

    Over one third of African-American women in their mid-thirties who were not married and who had publicly assisted births tested positive for cocaine.

    In contrast, high risk whites had higher marijuana prevalence levels than African-American women, and prevalence increased with age.

    Alcohol prevalence increased with age for African-American and white women who were publicly assisted, but decreased with age for all others. (...)
