Published: 29 January 2020
...Andrea M. Tilstra; Ryan K. Masters Abstract Birth weight in the United States declined substantially during the 1990s and 2000s. We suggest that the declines were likely due to shifts in gestational age resulting from changes in obstetric practices. Using restricted National Vital Statistics System...

The data used are the 2001 U.S. national African American, Mexican American, and European American birth cohorts by sex.

...Amy Hsin Abstract Time diaries of sibling pairs from the PSID-CDS are used to determine whether maternal time investments compensate for or reinforce birth-weight differences among children. The findings demonstrate that the direction and degree of differential treatment vary by mother’s education...

...Elwood D. Carlson Abstract Over ninety low-weight infants were born per thousand live births in South Carolina, based on 96,000 birth records from 1975 and 1979. Higher incidence of low birth weight for black infants cannot be explained away as a result of black/white differences in age or...

... explained statistically as a product of the distribution of births by birth weight and maternal age. The impact of birth weight is more pronounced than is the effect of maternal age. The analysis suggests the potential utility of examining infant mortality separately by cause of death. Based on the findings...

...Ming-Jen Lin; Jin-Tan Liu; Shin-Yi Chou Abstract This research note combines two national Taiwanese data sets to investigate the relationships among low birth weight (LBW) babies, their parents’ educational levels, and their future academic outcomes. We find that LBW is negatively correlated with...

...Narayan Sastry; Jon M. Hussey Abstract We examine differences in the mean birth weights of infants born to non-Hispanic black, non-Hispanic white, and Mexican-origin Hispanic mothers (of any race) in Chicago in 1990 using linear regression models with neighborhood fixed effects. Our pooled models...

...Jeffrey E. Kallan Abstract The low birth weight (LBW) gap between blacks and whites has remained largely unexplained in past research. Most previous research on the topic has focused on LBW as a single entity, and without using a causal framework for. analysis. The present study examines the...

...Edwin J.C.G. Van Den Oord; David C. Rowe Abstract To advance research on birth weight differences between black and white infants, it may be useful to study maternal effects. These effects present a set of risk factors that are largely unrelated to those that are presently under investigation and...
