Trends in the incidence of breastfeeding for Hispanics of Mexican origin and Anglos on the US-Mexico border


, : Trends in the incidence of breastfeeding for Hispanics of Mexican origin and Anglos on the US-Mexico border. American Journal of Public Health 72(1): 59-61

In 1979 the Centers for Disease Control conducted a household probability survey of reproductive aged women living in 51 selected US countries on the US-Mexico border. Information on the incidence of breastfeeding for the period 1971-1979 was analyzed on 345 Anglo women and 689 Hispanic women of Mexican origin. Results indicated that the Anglos are following the national trend of increased breastfeeding, but Hispanics show no indication of an increase in the practice of breastfeeding.
