The relationship between race and risk of pregnancy-induced hypertension was investigated in a cohort of active-duty military women who gave birth during the period 1987 through 1989.
Cases were identified through hospital discharge diagnoses and included transient gestational hypertension, pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, and unspecified hypertension complicating pregnancy.
Multivariate analysis showed nulliparous Black women to be at a slightly increased risk for all pregnancy-induced hypertension (risk ratio [RR]=1.2) and for pre-eclampsia (RR=1.3) compared with nulliparous White women.
