Hispanic Paradox in Adult Mortality in the United States
This chapter provides an update to our earlier review on the Hispanic paradox in adult mortality (Markides and Eschbach 2005). We focus primarily on manuscripts published beginning in 2005. As in our earlier review, we concentrate on mortality at adult and older ages. When relevant, however, we will draw on recent literature examining other outcomes, such as disability, health behaviors, medical conditions, and mental health.
