Secular trends in the effect of socio-economic factors on birth weight and infant survival in Sweden.
Time trends in the effect of socio-economic factors on low birth weight, stillbirth, perinatal deaths and deaths up to the age of one were studied using a medical birth registry linked to census information from 1975, 1980 and 1985.
For each census year, delivery outcome the following year was studied.
Two socio-economically different groups of women were studied, defined by occupation/education, cohabitation, and citizienship - one privileged and one underprivileged group.
A difference in birth weight distribution was found between the two groups which is only partly explainable by different smoking habits in early pregnancy and did not substantially change during the ten year observation period.
