(McKinnon, et al., 2015 ). The difference is alarming as premature births are one of the
leading factors in perinatal mortality, again, it causes developmental challenges in the later
life of a child. The disparity is attributed to social-economic challenges among the blacks
including; poverty, crime, racial discrimination and adverse health habits. On the other hand,
low-weight births of between 6.8%-7.6% were established between Asian Indian, black, and
Filipino women while 3.4%-3.7% among whites, Chinese and Korean women (Abramo,

smoking habits.
