Abstract

Over the last 20 years or so there has been mounting evidence that Hispanics as a group as well as Hispanic populations from individual countries are characterized by relatively favorable mortality profiles despite generally disadvantaged socioeconomic profiles (Markides and Coreil, 1986; Markides, Rudkin, Angel, and Espino, 1977; Markides and Eschbach, 2005; Franzini, Ribble, and Keddie, 2001; Palloni and Morenoff, 2001; Sorlie, Rogot, and Johnson, 1993). The advantage shown in vital statistics is greatest, though such data likely underestimate mortality rates because of misclassification of Hispanic ethnicity on death certificates (Sorlie, Rogot, and Johnson, 1992).
