This study compared birth outcomes of three cohorts of women with singleton live births in Washington State between 1980 and 1991 : all Black Ethiopian-born women (n=264) and samples of US-born Black (n=526) and White (n=546) women.
Ethiopians were older, more likely to be married, and less likely to smoke than were US-born women, and they were less likely to have anemia than US-born Blacks.
The adjusted low-birthweight risk among Ethiopians was similar to that of US-born Blacks (relative risk [RR]=0.9) and Whites (RR=1.1).
