    Fulltext.

    National data reveal that low birth weight and infant mortality rates among Hispanics are, in general, between the rates for whites and those for blacks.

    The question remains, do differences in low birth weight reflect distributions of known risk factors, or do ethnic differences persist after simultaneously adjusting for intervening variables?

    In this study, Massachusetts birth certificate data for 706,973 white non-Hispanic infants and 19,571 Hispanic infants are used to examine differences in low birth weight between white non-Hispanic and Hispanic infants, as well as variation among seven subgroups of Hispanic mothers-Puerto Rican, Dominican, Central American, South American, Mexican, Cuban, and other Hispanic.
