Title: Defining Infants' Race and Ethnicity in a Study of very Low Birthweight Infants Author: D. Farley Subject: Studies of racial and ethnic differentials in birth outcomes require accurate identification of the race and ethnicity of infants in the study samples.

The percentage of California infants born at low birthweight rose steadily from % in to % in and has remained fairly stable through Statewide, the number of infants born at very low birthweight was 5, in and accounted for % of all births, similar to.

It has long been recognized that African American infants are more than twice as likely as White infants to die in their first year of life.1, 2 Reflecting the public health relevance of this phenomenon, Healthy People calls for the elimination of the racial disparity in infant mortality rates.3 Infant birthweight is a primary determinant of infant mortality by: For each ethnic group, we calculated the proportion of very low birthweight.

Background: Multiple demographic, genetic, and environmental factors differ between Muslim and Jewish infants in Israel. Objective: To evaluate whether, after adjustment for perinatal factors associated with mortality, excess mortality occurs in very low birthweight (VLBW) Muslim compared with Jewish infants.

Very low birth weight was dichotomized as yes (Cited by: The rate of low birthweight for overall births was %.

Health of Mothers and Infants by Race/Ethnicity 15 Very Low Birth Weight • % of King County infants (average of each year) were born at very low birth weight. • Infants born to Black mothers were times more likely to be very low birth weight, compared to the group with the lowest rates in King County.

Preterm birth and low birth weight vary by race and ethnicity, with rates typically highest among infants born to non-Hispanic Black women.

Inpercent of babies born to non-Hispanic Black women were preterm and percent were low birth weight, rates Figure 1. Very Preterm, Preterm, Very Low Birth Weight, and Low BirthFile Size: KB.

Her study with co-researcher and UBC professor Patricia Janssen looked at how birth weight varies by ethnicity. They examined data from more thannewborns against different birth-weight standards: a population-based chart (established primarily with white babies from to ) and two other newer charts that accounted for.Outcome of very low birthweight (VLBW) infants depends to a high degree on optimal cooperation between obstetricians and neonatologists.

Until recently this necessity had not been recognized in many countries. Years ago there was very little chance of finding a position as a neonatologist because neonatology was almost by: 6.
