In cross-section, younger persons generally show stronger education effects on survival, although this pattern is clearer for women than...

The relative infant survival disadvantage among Mexican-origin infants born to older mothers may be attributed to differences...

Inasmuch as previous research has consistently found a survival advantage for black infants at very low birth weights, one would expect the relative disparity between black and white LBW infants to be smaller than that observed among all infants. Indeed, this is what we found...

Our analysis uses the National Health Interview Survey (1992–2009) with linked mortality data through 2011 ( n = 875,306). We find a survival advantage for U.S...
