A comparison of hip fracture incidence among native Japanese, Japanese Americans, and American Caucasians.
Hip fracture incidence rates among men and women of Japanese ancestry living on Oahu, Hawaii, from 1979 to 1981 were compared with rates for Japanese living on Okinawa, Japan, from 1984 to 1985.
Both rates were further compared with those for various American Caucasian populations, including that of Rochester, Minnesota, from 1978 to 1982.
Age-specific and cumulative hip fracture rates among persons of Japanese ancestry were approximately half that of Caucasians for both sexes.
