AbstractObjective: Recent research has documented the consistency of the epidemiologic paradox. For all major Hispanic groups, despite high-risk profiles, adjusted infantmortality rates are similar to, or more favorable than, those for non-Hispanic whites. Few studies have examined the infant cause-of-death structure for Hispanics.
