  1. Regional Differences in Low Birth Weight in Spain: Biological, Demographic and Socioeconomic Variables.Vicente Fuster, Pilar Zuluaga, S. E. Colantonio & J. Román-Busto - 2015 - Journal of Biosocial Science 47 (1):90-104.
    SummaryThe geographic and demographic dimensions of Spain, in terms of surface and number of inhabitants, and its heterogeneous socioeconomic development offer an adequate opportunity to study the provincial differences in birth weight from 1996 to 2010, focusing on possible factors determining the relative frequency of low birth weight. The study analysed geographic differences with regard to biological, demographic and socioeconomic factors that interfere with the female reproductive pattern. The variables considered here were: birth order, proportion of premature deliveries, mother's age, (...)

  • Testing the Effect of the Epidemiologic Paradox: Birth Weight of Newborns of Immigrant and Non-Immigrant Mothers in the Region of Valencia, Spain.Carles Simó & Salvador Méndez - 2014 - Journal of Biosocial Science 46 (5):635-650.
    SummaryThe epidemiological paradox and ‘healthy migrant effect’ refer to the favourable health outcomes in unprivileged groups under unfavourable socioeconomic conditions. Weight at birth is associated with the epidemiological paradox. However, differences in fertility structure might be the cause of the difference in weight at birth between children of immigrant and non-immigrant mothers. This paper aims to analyse the impact of the epidemiologic paradox by distinguishing between the factors related to fertility structure, in addition to other socio-cultural factors. The importance of (...)
