  1. Black-white differences in fracture rates.

    Article - En anglais

    To compare the incidence of all nonvertebral fractures between elderly blacks and whites, the authors conducted a retrospective cohort study among Tennessee Medicaid enrollees aged 65 years or more from 1987 through 1989.

    A previously validated computer algorithm identified 6,802 persons of black or white race with 7,645 new nonvertebral fractures.

    The incidence of all nonvertebral fractures in blacks was only half of that in whites.

    This finding persisted after the authors controlled for sex, age, and nursing home residence (relative risk=0.4, 95% confidence interval 0.4-0.5).
