    There are significant racial disparities in infant mortality rates in the United States. Non-Hispanic Black mothers experience the highest infant mortality rate among all racial and ethnic groups ( infant deaths per 1, live births), as well as the highest rates of preterm birth (delivery before 37 weeks of gestation) and low birth weight, both of which are leading causes of infant death.   Alberto Palloni and Elizabeth Arias, “Paradox Lost: Explaining the Adult Hispanic Mortality Advantage,” Demogra no. 3 (): Cassio Turra and Irma Elo, “The Impact of Salmon Bias on the Hispanic Mortality Advantage: New Evidence From Social Security Data,” Population Research and Policy Rev no. 5 ():

      The median age of the US Hispanic population is 27 years, as compared to the US population (37 years) and NHWs (42 years) [29, 30].Life expectancy at birth is longer for Hispanics ( years for males, for females) than for NHWs ( years for males, for females) (23), and Hispanics have a lower lifespan variability than do NHWs [].Cited by: Women of Color Health Data Book Cancer is the leading cause of death in Hispanic women. 1 And despite having a lower incidence of cancers overall, migrant field workers like her have increased rates of central nervous system neoplasms. 2 Among populations of color, in addition to socioeconomic status, acculturation—the process of File Size: 2MB.

    The Hispanic population in the United States is a richly diverse and changing segment of our national community. Frank Bean and Marta Tienda emphasize a shifting cluster of populations—Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central and South American, Spanish, and Caribbean—as they examine fertility and immigration, family and marriage patterns, education, earnings, and by: QuickFacts Orange County, California.
