  1. Methods for the evaluation of social effects on birth weight : experiences with Swedish population registries.

    Article - En anglais

    All births in Sweden in 1986, registered in the Medical Birth Registry, were analyzed with linked data from the November 1985 census in order to identify variables which could be used as proxy variables for the socio-economic situation of the women, using birth weight as outcome variable.

    Two phenomena appear to be strong socio-economic indices of significance for birth weight:whether the woman co-habited or not at the census and whether she had a long education (>14 years) and an « academic » work.
