Child health and the social environment of white and black children.
Both poverty and other factors associated with race are related to child health.
However, the mechanisms of these relationships have not been adequately specified.
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship of the social environment to child health status in black and white children and further, to explore whether the patterns of the effects of social class were different by race.
This study provides further evidence that the social environment is strongly associated with child health status.
Several risk factors are similar for both white and black children: mothers who view their own health as fair or poor are much more likely to rate their children in poor health.
