Q

How does the rate of hospitalization for older (age 65 and above) African Americans compare to the rate of hospitalization for other older adults?

The above could look at comparisons with white Americans or other ethnic groups. I am most interested in SE Wisconsin, but regional or national would be good, too.

Answer

If you do a search in matc.edu databases and search for 'hospitalization and elderly and african american' you will find articles in Academic Journals that may help you entitled:

End-of-Life Hospitalization for African American and Non-Latino White Nursing Home Residents: Variation by Race and a Facility's Racial Composition

Ethnic differences in the place of death of elderly hospice enrollees

Post-hospital home care for African-American and white elderly


If you do not have access to databases that will help, try googlescholar.com.

Also, check out government websites, specifically www.cdc.gov and this publication:
