Gradients in low birthweight by maternal education: A comparative perspective

Abstract

Longstanding research has shown strong inequalities in low birthweight by household income. However, most such research has focused on Anglophone countries, while evidence emerging from other developed countries suggest a stronger role of education rather than incomes in creating inequalities at birth. This paper compares gradients in low birthweight by maternal education, as well as explores underlying mechanisms contributing to these gradients, in France, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Analyses are based on harmonized data from large, nationally-representative samples from France, UK and US. We use regression models and decomposition methods to explore the relative role of several possible mechanisms in producing birthweight inequalities.
