Epidemiology of fetal alcohol syndrome in American Indians, Alaskan Natives, and Canadian Aboriginal Peoples : a review of the literature.
A critical review of available reports on the epidemiology of fetal alcohol syndrome among American Indians, Alaskan Natives, and Aboriginal peoples of Canada was completed.
A search of Medline, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Database, and other relevant data bases was conducted.
The reference lists of several publications on fetal alcohol syndrome were reviewed, and four prominent researchers and four government agencies were contacted to identify unpublished articles.
This search identified 10 studies, 8 of them cross-sectional.
Four of these studies used primary data from the authors'evaluations of children suspected of having fetal alcohol syndrome ; the other six used secondary data.
