Geronimus and Bound find high death rates persist for black Americans in 2000

a PSC In The News reference, 2011

"Death Rates Remain Higher for Poor Black Americans" - Health Behavior News Service. 02/24/2011.

Citing findings from her recent study with John Bound and Cynthia Colen (American Journal of Public Health, forthcoming), Arline Geronimus says that despite improved economic conditions, working-age residents of urban poverty areas still suffer severe excess mortality. The failure to reduce the toll of chronic illness is of particular concern, said Geronimus.
