    Ethnicity and the sudden infant death syndrome. Conference. Cardiff GBR, 1993/06/25.


    To compare the effect of potential maternal and birth factors on rates of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) within and between infants born to mothers of different ethnic groups.


    Routinely collected obstetric, child health data relating to 39,101 residents of three East London Districts born in 1989-1990 were obtained.

    These were matched with 312 death registration records to validate death and add registered cause of death.

    Mortality rates were calculated in the usual way, and using life-table methods.


    These related to six ethnic groups, the largest of which were Anglo-European and Bangladeshi.

    Low birthweight was the only factor associated with a greater risk of SIDS in all ethnic groups.
