    • Abstract:
      This article reports that black-white infant mortality differential has grown in recent decades and will persist into next century. Infant mortality in the United States has declined dramatically in the past four decades, but racial disparities in infant mortality levels have grown. Black infants are currently more than twice as likely as white infants to die, and according to a recent analysis of vital statistics data, this differential is expected to persist into the 21st century. Overall U. S. infant mortality rates declined steadily between 1950 and 1991, at an average annual rate of 3.1%. Infant mortality fell slowly between 1950 and 1965, at a rate of 1% per year, but began to decrease sharply thereafter, with an overall reduction of almost 50% between 1965 and 1981. Data for 1964-1966 and for 1987 show maternal education to have been inversely associated with infant mortality In 1964-1964 the infant mortality rate among blacks fell steadily with increasing maternal education, from 45.9 percent 1000 among those with eight or fewer years of schooling to 32.1 per 1,000 among those with more than a high school education.
