MONDAY, May 15, 2017 (HealthDay News)—Fewer U.S. babies are dying from SIDS, but certain minorities remain at greater risk, a new study finds. Researchers who tracked cases of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) from 1995 through 2013 found that American Indian/Alaska Natives and blacks had double the rate in 2013 compared to whites. MONDAY, May 15, 2017 (HealthDay News) Fewer U.S. babies are dying from SIDS, but certain minorities remain at greater risk, a new study finds. Researchers who tracked cases of Sudden Infant. Immediately after the 1994 Back-to-Sleep campaign, sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) rates decreased dramatically, but they have remained relatively stable (93.4 per 100 000 live births) since 2000.
In this study, we examined trends in SUID rates and disparities by race/ethnicity since the Back-to-Sleep campaign. Significant Racial, Ethnic Gaps Still Remain Despite Efforts To Broadly Reduce Sudden Infant Deaths It’s not clear why American Indian and Alaska Native infants experience a higher rate of SIDS. American Indians and Alaska Natives had a rate of 177.6 sudden unexplained infant deaths per 100,000 live births in 2013 (down from 237.5 per 100,000 in 1995) compared with 172.4 for non-Hispanic blacks (down from 203), 84.5 for non-Hispanic whites (down from 93), 49.3 for Hispanics (down from 62.7) and 28.3 for Asians and Pacific Islanders (down from 59.3). American Indian and Alaska Native families are much more likely to have an infant die suddenly and unexpectedly, and that risk has remained higher than in other ethnic groups since public health. Nearly two-thirds of infant deaths occur during the first month after birth, often from congenital abnormalities and complications from preterm births.8Preterm birth is a significant contributor to.

Actual and predicted infant mortality rate gaps are shown in Figure 1. The overall actual infant mortality rate of whites in our sample was 5.35 per 1,000 live births. Three groups had a substantially higher rate: blacks at 12.35, Native Americans at 8.31, and Puerto Ricans at 7.61.
Deaths due to SIDS accounted for the largest proportion of SUID for most racial/ethnic groups, ranging from 39% of SUID among non-Hispanic black infants to 44% of SUID among American Indian/Alaska Native infants and non-Hispanic white infants.
