  1. Fulltext. Infant mortality and related risk factors among Asian Americans.

    Article - En anglais


    To examine differences in perinatal health among nine Asian ethnic subgroups, a descriptive epidemiological study was conducted using linked birth/infant death certificates for 1982 to 1987.

    When compared with Whites, Asians had a lower proportion of young mothers, unmarried mothers, and women who received first trimester prenatal care ; a higher proportion of foreign-born mothers ; and a different birthweight distribution.
