MONDAY, Sept. 18, 2017 (HealthDay News)—American seniors are getting healthier overall, but the well-educated, rich and white are seeing the greatest gains, a new study finds. Researchers reviewed federal government data on more than 55,000 older adults.

The U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging will hold a hearing July 21 on racial health disparities among seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic. The hearing is expected to begin at 9:30 a.m. ET.

MONDAY, Sept. 18, 2017 American seniors are getting healthier overall, but the well-educated, rich and white are seeing the greatest gains, a new study finds. In the U.S., based on data from 2016, white babies die before their first birthday at a rate of 4.9 per 1,000, and white women die from pregnancy and childbirth-related causes at.

Rich Seniors Are Getting Healthier, Leaving the Poor Behind Millions more seniors now self-identify as healthy, federal data show. But the gains occurred only among those with higher levels of education and income. White, Rich Seniors Are Getting Healthier Written by Matthew Berger — Updated on October 11, 2017 More higher income and white seniors report they are in good health. xv CONTENTS 7 DATA COLLECTION AND MONITORING 215 Obstacles to Racial/Ethnic Data Collection, 217 The Federal Role in Racial, Ethnic, and Primary Language Health Data, 219 Other Data Sources to Assess Healthcare Disparities, 223 Models of Measuring Disparities in Healthcare, 226 Data Needs and Recommendations, 232 8 NEEDED RESEARCH 235.

Health disparities are preventable differences in the burden of disease, injury, violence, or in opportunities to achieve optimal health experienced by socially disadvantaged racial, ethnic, and other population groups, and communities. Health disparities exist in all age groups, including older adults. Fifty years after the U.S. civil rights movement, racial economic inequality remains an undeniable force in American life. The family income gap between blacks and whites today remains at almost exactly the level it was in the 1960s—just one of many indicators of the remarkably little progress toward racial convergence in family income. Many well-documented [ ].

Racial health disparities demand renewed attention from policy-makers as Minnesota struggles to dismantle systemic and institutional racism. and how racism in U.S. health care impacts African American health and lives. as noted in the story above, yet remain dedicated to care giving. We must dedicate ourselves to them, to the people and.

Increasing Diversity The U.S. population is becoming older, and while non-Hispanic whites today remain the largest single group of older adults, the nation is experiencing a historic shift in the diversity of older racial and ethnic groups (Frey, 2014).

With increasing age, however, the race/ethnic disparity between black people and other groups tends to decrease so that by age 75, there are no substantial differences among race/ethnic groups in stroke mortality.

Elderly African Americans also are more likely to assess their health as fair or poor.73 Older Latinos have a generally favorable mortality pattern but become disabled earlier and more often than non-Latino whites.

However, racial differences in health grow smaller in older populations, and there is even some evidence that blacks who survive to join the oldestold category are healthier than whites of the same age.

  • Hey folks!
    In light of current events, we republished this 2010 video as it became relevant again. To provide the audience with context, Prof. D’Amico added a bit of extra content. You can find it in the updated description or in his original comment below.

  • This seems extraordinarily flawed.

    By this reckoning the criminal justice system is incredibly sexist also.

    Or maybe more men commit crimes than women.

    I hate to see such badly informed videos like this. People will just take it that the criminal justice system is racist. This video itself is actually dangerous.

  • My mother discover news about George Floyd killed, she said reason he killed for joking kidding clowning around the cop too much end up get killed, like she’s meant black people joking around too much didn’t take serious action. She also told me her worker friend in nail saloon got robbed by who black teen-look when the purse visible on work desk, they ran away. She said black people making much excuses. She doesn’t all black people, she’s only hate if they live in non-white neighbor area (poor area).

    (I’m sorry if these word doesn’t make you understand, I’m not native English speaker)

  • Lets take a look at the Stats that make up your stats. This video is clearly Bias and like most media is not looking for a real solution regarding the real issues affecting black communities.

  • Over 90% of prisoners are men. That’s clear systemic sexism! We need to even out those numbers to make things “equal.” We either need to let men out or LOCK HER UP!

  • Prison populations are proportional to who commits crimes, not race. Why are the choices that lead to poverty, that leads to crime, not a permitted topic? Why can’t we talk about the destruction of the black family?

  • Besides all the shortcomings of this video. No statistics?? I have a message, don’t break the law, you will not be in the justice system. Horrible

  • What a bunch of horseshit. More black and Hispanics are in jail cuz they did something to land themselves there. Also, your radical ideas, as you yourself said, are not welcome here, you fruitcake leftist. You’re not fooling anyone

  • This channel cucked, as expected. Expecting a backbone from libertarians is like expecting fish to fly.
    Why didn’t you show the crime statistics by race? The only statistic that matters. Prison is a consequence, crime is the cause.

  • That epic moment where the people in the comment section will realize that the crime rate is based on the arrest rates. also he isn’t saying that the justice system is racist because black people are proportionally more in prison, he is saying that this difference is more damaging to black communities, and therefore, create discrimination. Expecially since the justice system is more punitive than rehabilitative, so because the racial socioeconomic disparity, african american communities, and hispanic communities are more targeted than white communities.

  • These statistics are true, but not whole.
    You’re missing the crime rates by race.

    I’d say one of the biggest factors would be fathers abandoning their family.
    I’ve been very lucky in this regard.

  • At first i wondered

    Why is this happing in city that caters to the people…now i know whats up…They want trump to call marshall law and some of these people get killed…then Democrates can say TRUMP killed peaceful protesters..and use at 2020 elections

  • The democrats own the education system, the media, Hollywood, Big Tech and administrative government. If there is systematic racism or oppression, it’s at the feet of democrats. Lifelong democrat politicians who never did anything to improve the lives of their constituents, only to pander with the race card every time election season rolls around should be a wake up call for all to see the true hypocrisy that exists within the democrat party.

  • Lol, did this guy just say @ 2:30 that people that do drugs get incarcerated. Yeah money helps to get a good lawyer, but also it helps to not do drugs.
