Mortality patterns prevalent among American Indian youth have not been well documented.
This investigation reports on mortality patterns among the Seneca Nation of Indians from January 1, 1955, through December 31, 1989.
The study cohort consisted of 3,033 Seneca tribal members born during the study period.
Deaths occurring among cohort members younger than age 25 were identified through a computer match against New York State vital record files.
Sex-specific standardized mortality ratios were calculated on the basis of mortality patterns inhibited by the general population of New York State, exclusive of New York City.
