  1. Marital status and infant health outcomes.

    Article - En anglais

    Out-of-wedlock status has long been recognized as a demographic risk factor associated with infant mortality and low birthweight.

    However, the relationship between marital status and birth outcomes varies by maternal race and age.

    The negative impact of unmarried status is greatest for white women age 20 and over.

    High infant mortality rates for married teen mothers challenge the assumption that marriage necessarily provides a protective environment for childbearing.
