Abstract

Results of this study suggest substantial heterogeneity in mean birthweight and risk for low birthweight among ethnic groups in general and the major Asian-American groups in particular. Interestingly, after controlling for ethnic differences in sociodemographic risk factors, Filipinos appear to resemble Blacks much more closely than they do their Japanese and Chinese counterparts with respect to risk for low birthweight.
