  1. Fulltext. Racial misclassification of American Indians : its effect on injury rates in Oregon, 1989 through 1990.

    Article - En anglais



    We assessed the extent to which injury rates among American Indians in Oregon are underestimated owing to misclassification of race in a surveillance system.


    The Oregon Injury Registry, a population-based surveillance system, was linked with the Indian Health Service patient registration file from Oregon, and injury rate for American Indians were calculated befor and after correcting for racial misclassification.


    In 1989 and 1990, 301 persons in the Oregon registry were coded as American Indian.
