A new study in Pediatrics outlines how American Indian/Alaska Native and African American babies are still more likely to die suddently and unexpectedly than babies from other racial and ethnic groups. The article states, "From 1995 to 2013, SUID rates were consistently highest for American Indian/Alaska Natives, followed by Non-Hispanic Blacks. The rate for Non-Hispanic Blacks decreased significantly, whereas the rate for Non-Hispanic Whites also declined, but not significantly. As a result, the disparity between NHWs and NHBs narrowed slightly."
