... is helpful for thinking about upstream determinants of health inequalities. Our first research question asks how the IMDI, or the concentration of infant deaths into disadvantaged women, changed over time for White and Black women. We then conduct decomposition analysis to answer the second research...

..., descriptive statistics based on mean differences do not indicate which of EI and EE is most to blame for the weight gap. For this, we must rely on our decomposition analysis. Finally, the sample averages suggest that black females in the NHANES sample are, on average, younger than white females...

We propose a method of decomposition analysis based on an assumption that covariates change continuously along an actual or hypothetical dimension. This assumption leads to a general model that logically justifies the additivity of covariate...

Although foreign-born and U.S.-born White mortality rates trended toward convergence over time, the foreign-born mortality penalty remained into the 1950s.
