Poverty, Race, and Hospitalization for Childhood Asthma.
Wissow, Lawrence S.; And Others
American Journal of Public Health, v78 n7 p777-82 Jul 1988
Examination of Maryland hospital discharge data for 1979 to 1982 reveals that Black children are three times more likely to be hospitalized for asthma than are White children. This, however, is due to poverty, not race. (Author/BJV)
