    Article - En anglais



    Tis study sought to examine racial differences in the use of medical procedures and diagnostic test by elderly Americans.


    We used 1986 physician claims data for a 5% national sample of Medicare enrollees aged 65 years and older to study 32 procedures and tests.

    For each service, we calculated the age-and sex-adjusted rate of use by race and the corresponding White-Black relative risk.
