  1. Fulltext. The perinatal and infant health status of native Hawaiians.

    Article - En anglais


    Hawaii vital record data for 1979 through 1990 were analyzed to examine potentially differing relationships between maternal and infant risks and outcomes in native Hawaiian and White infants.

    Despite high rates of inadequate prenatal care and teenage and unmarried child-bearing, the Hawaiian low-birthweight rate was below the US average.

    Hawaiian infants experienced an elevated risk of mortality, particularly among those of normal birthweight during the postneonatal period.
