  1. Geographic patterns of low birth weight in Hawaii.

    Article - En anglais

    This study examines areal variations in low birth weight, using the census tract as the unit of analysis.

    Reports from the 1980 U.S census were used to develop summary indicators of environmental and socio-economic conditions, including poverty, employment, education and crowding, for 155 census tracts in the state of Hawaii.

    Maternal socio-demographic, prenatal care utilization, and medical risk indicators and low birth weight percentages for resident, single live births were extracted from the Hawaii 1979-1987 vital record live birth files and aggregated by census tract.
