  1. Fulltext. Racial differences in cervical cancer mortality in Chicago.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Racial differences in cervical cancer mortality in Chicago were examined.

    Age-adjusted mortality in Blacks (10.0/100 000) was over twice the rate found in Whites (4.6/100 000).

    Age-specific rates also showed significant excess mortality among Blacks.

    After stratification by a group-level defined poverty indicator, the race differential in age-adjusted rates remained significant.

    The race differential in age-specific rates diminished in the group with more than 30% living below the national poverty level, in contrast to the group with 30% or fewer living below the national poverty level, in whom race differences were more marked.
