Since the end of the Korean War, immigration of Koreans to the United States has increased rapidly.
In 1990, 11.6 percent of all Asians in the United States were of Korean ethnicity, and its is projected that Koreans will outnumber all other Asian groups, except Filipinos, in the United States by the year 2030.
Despite the growing size of this population, very little is known about their health status.
This study, using 1979-1989 Hawaii vital record data, investigates the relationship between maternal sociodemographic characteristics, prenatal care utilization factors, and birth outcomes among Koreans as compared with Caucasians.
