Racial Inequality and Child Mortality in Brazil.
Wood, Charles H.; Lovell, Peggy A.
Social Forces, v70 n3 p703-24 Mar 1992
In 1980 urban Brazil, race of mother significantly affected child mortality after controlling for region, income, and parent education, with a mortality gap of 6.7 years between the whites and Afro-Brazilians. Parent education, indoor plumbing, access to public health care, and presence of adult females significantly reduced the probability of death for both white and nonwhite children.
