Name Instructor Course Date Maternal Education and Infant Mortality Li, Qing, and Louis G. Keith. "The Differential Association Between Education And Infant Mortality By Nativity Status Of Chinese American Mothers: A Life-Course Perspective." American Journal Of Public Health, vol 101, no. 5, 2011, pp. 899-908. American Public Health Association, doi:10.2105/ajph.2009.186916. The authors carried out a study to determine whether any association exists between maternal education and infant mortality rate and also whether the maternal place of origin has a significant input on infant mortality. The study group encompassed a group of 165,660 Chinese American mothers of which 15,040 were born in America while the rest came as foreigners. The author’s report concludes that maternal nativity and education hugely affects infant mortality among Chinese Americans. Most of the US-born mothers showed to have a low education that was detrimental to causing infant mortality. Us mothers born with less than 12 years of education tend to have a higher risk of infant mortality which stood at 2.39; 95% (with a confidence interval = 1.33, 4.27). The mortality rate, however, was so low for mothers with more than 15 years of educating proving that education is key in reducing infant mortality rate. Bado, Aristide Romaric, and A.
